Sweet little Owl, I love the eyes! Great shot.
Thanks Di, it is such a gentle, beautiful bird to look at, perhaps its pray, in the wild, would not look on it that way.

nice shot! keep it up
Thanks for the feature, my first, I was assisted greatly by a beautiful bird.
Congratulations on your feature in ‘The Birds’, well done!
Thanks Di, your praise is very welcome.
Let’s try a White-faced Owl even though he’s from Africa from the looks of it. Maybe this one was visiting? It was KILLING me that I couldn’t find your beautiful fellow…….
You have hit the nail on the head Carla, thanks. Your ID has resulted in me finding a photo of the very same bird on the “Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, Worksop Group” Web page. Worksop is only 15 Miles from Pleasley, where I saw this beautiful owl, which seems to confirm it. They describe it as an African White Faced Owl. Thanks again Carla, I have been searching Google for this owl for quite some time without success until your assistance.
I finally got to the point where I was looking up Black/white owls and Owls with ‘ears’…lolGlad to help Dennis…I LOVE owls and this guy was no acception. :o)
