We have had owls in our yard in years past. I guess I should pull up the old photos and study them out to see if this is the same one. It's windy today and the owl found a relatively calm place to sleep. When I went out with the camera it woke up. Is there a way to tell if it is a male or female by looking at the photo? I'm not a good bird photographer but I sure love watching the owls that we get in our yard.
