We had a new visitor to the back yard. I believe it is a Barred Owl.
We were enjoying our early morning coffee in the screen room when it swooped in and landed.
This is the tree in the backyard by the bird feeders. We had to cut the top out of it last year because it is hollow near the bottom and within falling distance of the house.
The cats sometimes climb up and sit there.
A beautiful bird. Blends in well with the tree and branches.
It didn’t take long for the cats to disappear…..so perhaps it’s been here before.
