An Owl! Finally! After 3 months of searching...

I wish I could say that I found the Owls all by myself, but I didn't. Great thanks goes to Debbie Becker; for leading me, and the rest of the folks on her Birdwalk right to them. Debbie leads Birdwalks in the New York Botanical Garden on most Saturdays.

Well Debbie located and pointed out both a Female & Male Great Horned Owl to us. It wasn't easy, those Owls really know how to camouflage themselves.

Here is a pic of the Male, taken with 8x Bushnell binoculars with 3 Megapixel built-in camera.
(which explains why the photo quality is soo poor). The image needed to be enlarged, enhanced, etc. I'm still waiting for my film slides to arrive, at which point, I should have some nice photos to upload.
