Chicago Long-Eared Owls

We took a mini wildlife tour of Chicago today.

Recently, a number of news outlets reported a rare sighting of long-eared owls roosting in a park near downtown Chicago. So we headed over there today. There were three left (according to the Chicago Tribune they numbered eleven several weeks ago) and one was hiding behind branches.

Here are a few photos . . .





While there, a lady told us about a hawk in a tree a block away. That was a nice little bonus . . .
