Great Gray Owl preening its feathers. Owls and other birds preen their feathers for a number of reasons. Preening allows the bird to remove dust, dirt, parasites, etc. It also straightens and aligns the feathers which helps insulate, waterproof and helps their flight.

Ever get the feeling you are being watched? If you take a walk in the woods at night odds are that there are indeed eyes upon you. Saw-whet Owls are more common than one would imagine, they often do not call and their flight feathers have evolved in way that enables them to fly silently, having more in common with a ghost than any terrestrial being. This is probably why most sane people do not walk in the woods at night, a primal fear of what stalks us in the dark is imbedded deep within our psyche. But if one can tune out the voice of sanity (something that I have been accused of doing from time to time) there is a whole world of mystery to discover, a world not seen or experienced by many in this modern age, and a world in which we are not only the observer but the observed.

A last quiet moment between @flyingwhereiveneverbeen Jane Kelly and the second young Barred Owl that was released by On the Wing last night in Epping, NH. 
Greatly appreciated the chance to view the release of the three young Barred Owls back into the wild! 
Thanks to Jane and her team...

Cavity Competition
Young Owls often compete with one another to remain at the cavity entrance in order to be fed first and most often.  Learn about the early lives of owls in my latest book: "Owl: A Year in the Lives of North American Owls”..

Owl of the evening photo!! Little dad resting on his perch. I believe this is dad because of his smaller size (females are a 1/3 bigger) and the fact that I have only seen him once since the little ones left the nest.  Hoping to bump into him again soon.  He's got his own unique look with the lazy eyelid on the right.

This is one of the youngest burrowing owl babies I have seen.
I spent a few hours inside a sweltering vehicle watching a burrow from a good distance away. This baby popped up for a few minutes before retreating back inside the cool burrow.
These owls are endangered in California, mostly due to human encroachment and urbanization.
Mom spends most of her time in the burrow with the babies, while Dad stands guard outside. The sun bleaches the male owl’s feathers so he looks substantially lighter-coloured than the female owl.

Great horned owl - Like all owls, their large eyes cannot move.  To look up, down or to the side the owls must move their entire heads and are able to turn their necks about 270 degrees. #elite_raptors

Some years Snowy Owls will return to the same corn fields and stay for the winter . Corn fields host an abundance of voles and mice so there is never a shortage of a food source for these beautiful wintering owls.

Owl banding season has begun, and I am so excited to have banded (a.k.a ringed) my first Northern Saw-whet Owl! This little cutie was a hefty 100g female in her second year. Saw-whets are a migratory owl species and their migration is just beginning now, over the next couple of months the Mackinac Straits Raptor Watch (link in bio) will be banding nightly. I am grateful to have the chance to meet many of these charismatic birds, adding to the body of research that is being collected in order to better understand this secretive species. I do not typically post bird-in-hand photos, and probably will not do this again, but I just couldn't resist sharing this landmark moment! ====================

E finalmente , ontem com esse registro de coruja-listrada (Strix hylophila) fecho as corujas da mata atlântica (desconsiderando a provável extinta caburé-de-pernambuco)...lifer mais do que especial pois foi a minha última (mata atlântica) e também a primeira da minha filha Lívia Mesquita, que também fez foto dela!!!
Agradecimento especial a @rafaweber que gentilmente nos levou até o local exato.

Fledgling Powerful Owl (Ninox strenua) from last night with @_faunagraphic and @joshbaker_wildshots

A couple of our pairs have been a bit later than previous years with chicks fledging in September, others were right on time with chicks fledging late July/early August. I don't mind, more time to enjoy the babies!

A Great Grey Owl studies me as I photograph it. We interrupted it mid-hunt, and it flew from its original perch into a small clearing where it stayed for a few minutes. Great Grey Owls are the largest North American owl species, and can only be found in the U.S. and Canada.

This Northern Hawk Owl was a surprise! It was spotted while going 60 mph, and we stopped to photograph it. After a few minutes, I took the liberty to call it in with the Merlin Bird ID app. It flew right into the tree next to us, and I was able to get this shot!!

Great horned owls (also known as Hoot Owls or Tiger Owls) are the third largest owl in North America, second only to the Great Grey and Snowy Owls, and the largest owl in South America. This particular bird was photographed just outside of Anchorage, Alaska at Potter Marsh. It was perched low to the ground, and let me photograph it for half an hour at no more than 30 feet away. It was one of my favorite birding moments from our Alaskan adventure!!
