Worry, and the Long Eared Owl (I mean Screech-Owl)
I just got confirmation from Sharon The Birdchick that this is actually a Screech-Owl, not a Long Eared Owl. Thanks Sharon!
Just about every day, I worry. I worry about my business and if I will be able to book enough weddings for the year. I also worry about my photographs and if they are good enough and then I worry about whether I’m good enough. Then I get all worked up and try not to panic…
And then, there are these little moments in life, like spotting a Long Eared Owl in our neighbors back yard. It’s these little moments that help to remind me that there is so much more to life and that whether I like it or not, I am right where I need to be.
This one’s a Life Lister for Tim! We haven’t seen one of these beauties in the wild, and here she is, right in the city!
You can’t see it very well, but in the photo below she has her mouth open. Thank you to the 5 scolding Bluejays that alerted us to her presence.
