Ok, so he's not really a pet or technically mine...but there was an owl perched in the big, bare tree in my front yard today! At first glance, I didn't realize it was an owl, but upon closer observation I do believe it is!! How beautiful is he? I realize owls aren't the friendliest creatures, but how cute is his face? You can click the pictures to enlarge them.
I did a little research and the closest match I can find is the Snowy Owl. The description says that the younger owls and females of this breed, typically have more dark spots. If you know how to identify owls please leave a comment!
