Barn Owl is Back

Barn Owl on Fencepost, oil painting
The wild barn owl that I feed from my garden bird table is back at last. He disappeared over the summer after the tawny owl, with whom he guardedly shares my outdoor dining table, went for him. I expect the encroaching cold weather has brought him back. That and the fact that the tawny owl is less prevelant now that his chicks have grown up.

  1. Beautiful painting, I had a Barn Owl when I was a teenager. Later on I rehabilitated injured raptors, and other birds. Too many restrictive laws for that nowadays. I envy you being able to interact with these owls.
