It was an amazing morning in my backyard… Two Barred Owls came to visit!

Two Barred Owls came to visit my backyard this morning! There is a family of them that live in the woods behind the house and they have been here for a few years now. I hear them pretty often, but rarely see them and always get excited when they allow me to get close to them to take a few photos. This morning was amazing since I spotted two of them on our mimosa tree. One even hung out on a limb right outside of my window for about two hours to sleep. At one point, he actually laid down with his head facing the ground while sleeping. I had no idea that they could sleep that way and not sitting up like you normally see them. I will miss seeing these beautiful owls when we move away to Finland in about six weeks. It was such an amazing and peaceful morning here in Florida!
