After Christmas, it felt good to get out into the brisk, and I do mean brisk, it was 12 degrees out this morning at sun up. I stopped several places along the river and found deer and a variety of birds. I am not the greatest at identifying birds but I do believe this is a great horned owl, a red tailed hawk and a white crested sparrow and maybe a purple finch. I added a better photo of the owl that I took last May in the exact same spot. Saw some mule deer too which is always a nice bonus.

Hi, great pictures. However, I think it is a White-crowned Sparrow, and a House Finch. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Ah I believe your are right. Thanks for stopping in! The owl is correct then? I could not decide if it was a Great Horned or a Screech Owl.
Yes, definitely a Great Horned Owl. We have lots of them down here.
