I Love Owls!

Owls have always been one of my favourite animals, and I was hence rather glad that a friend told me where to find them!

Spotted Wood-owls (Strix seloputo)
These are the Spotted Wood-owls (Strix seloputo).

Taking a nap...

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
Hmm... Are you looking at me?

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
Now you see it...

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
Now you don't!

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
Looking at the sky... Looks like it's going to rain soon...

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
Who's the idiot who slammed the car door?

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
Don't try to hide, door-slammer, I can see you!

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
Huh? You are still here?

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
And it gave me a wink when I was walking away...

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
Here's the other one...

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
And it spotted me...

I can even see it from the main road!

Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo)
Someone at the carpark slammed a car door, and it flew to a nearby tree in a carpark.

I went back another day, and spotted one of the owls. Possible that the other one was a female and could be nesting some where, as a friend saw them mating a few days ago.

It was looking around, appeared like it's rather bored.

Might as well take a nap!

So super cute!

Only spotted a barn owl once. This spotted wood owl is so adorable.

It's ok. I understand. The owls won't like too many visitors :)
