Down Time

With my relatively recent schedule opening up, I’ve been spending more time out in the fields shooting birds.  I’m a complete newbie and almost always have no idea what kind of bird is in my view finder.  I enjoy the challenge though.

On January 28th, 2017, a friend and I spent the day driving around the Skagit Valley WA area looking for Bald Eagles.  We knew it was a bit late in the season, but we wanted to see what we could find.



I didn’t know what I had captured until I got home.  Caught this Short-eared owl with what he caught.  Previous frames showed it tearing this poor mouse up.
