We've know we have owls in our woods for a loong time. The kids always set them off hooting, and the owls seem to have an internal clock knowing when it's naptime and begin calling to each other. We've spotted one on occasion. Tonight, we finally got one to stay still enough to get some pictures! He was watching us swing the kids on our swingset. He was just sitting very quietly staring. His partner flew off before we could really get a good picture.

Back in our woods up in a tree staring at us. Wally spotted him first.

Looks like a barred owl.

Watching Alden splash in our kiddy pool. Probably thinking, "Sigh. When are they ever going to go in? I really want supper but they are scaring it away."

That is cool; but perhaps he thought Aldie man would be a tasty morsel!
