Another Owl Prowl, Part 1




Last week, I published a couple of posts of a very successful outing in southwest Missouri, to photograph the wonderful little Short-eared Owls (if you missed these posts, you can find them by clicking on these links: “Owl Prowl, Part 1” , “Owl Prowl, Part 2”). As usual, whenever an outing goes very well, it’s […]

Owl Prowl, Part 1




Today’s post features some images I captured this past Saturday, as I photographed Short-eared Owls as they began their hunting ritual around sunset. Short-eared Owls are not year-round residents in my area. But in winter, they often will migrate southward, from the upper Midwest prairies, to prairie land in Missouri. These owls are one of […]

Fun Friday: Please, Not So Loud!




Today’s Fun Friday post comes from a rural Cass County (Missouri) Great Horned Owl nest that I am following. This nest has a pair of chicks that are growing by leaps and bounds. When I captured this image, it appears that the one chick is yelling into the other’s ear. But in reality, he was […]

Nesting Owls




Last Friday, I spent the morning photographing an active Great Horned Owl nest. If you caught my images last year, this is the same nest as I photographed last spring. The only exception is that this year, there are two owlets instead of one! Twice as much fun for me! Here are a few of […]

GH Owl Chick Update




After my wildflower workshop this past Saturday morning, I ran over and checked on the little Great Horned Owl chick that I featured a short while back. I’m trying to get over to the nest about every 7-10 days so that I can capture a photo history of the single chick in the nest. When […]

Fun Friday: Furball




Two days ago, I was able to get over to my friends Pete and Ginny’s house for some “fun fotography”. The day before, Ginny had contacted me about a new addition in their rural acreage … an active Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) with a just-hatched chick. So, the next day I headed over with […]

Nesting Great Horned Owls




This morning I found some nesting Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) images from early spring 2009 that I don’t believe I’ve shared. These images were made in a city park in Lee’s Summit, Missouri: It was a rather cold, windy day (you can see the adult’s “horns”, which are only tufts of feathers, leaning to […]

Wonderful News!




With the Dallas “Paw Prints” art festival midway through this Mother’s Day weekend event, I’m posting a news item, along with some photos from a previous post. I hope to be back on “real time” real soon! Last weekend, I participated in the “ArtsFest on Walnut Street” art festival in Springfield, Missouri. I met a […]

“Who Cooks For You?”




Back to more wildflowers soon. But today’s post greeted me as I awoke yesterday morning. Walking outside to put up the bird feeders (we have to keep them down at night or the raccoons hang from them, grabbing seed and demolishing them), when I looked up and saw a Barred Owl (Strix varia) fly by, […]
