A Hawk Owl

Well we have had lots of visitors to our quiet neighbourhood lately & it is all due to this little fellow.

Apparently he is a very rare owl that is a mix of an owl and a hawk and the chances that you will ever see one in your lifetime is very rare.

Our little friend has now been christened Owlie and is a regular sight on our way to and from home. He' s often found out hanging in his favourite tree just chilling surrounded by people with large lensed camera's and binoculars.

People are coming from all over the place CT, ME, MA just to see him.

Personally they are causing a little congestion in the area & I am tempted to sell coffee and muffins as it is bitter here and people spend hours watching him.

What a beautiful bird! Is that your photo?

Wow, that is a beautiful bird. I bet you'll be sad if and when he takes off.

He is a cutie and sadly this is not one of my photo's!

He looks exactly like Owl from Ernest Shepard's drawings in the Winnie The Pooh books. I'm surprised he's not reading a book.

That's an amazing bird, lucky you that you got to meet him.

It does sound like there could be a little business opening there with the coffee and muffins. :-)
