    Default Eastern Screech Owl?

    Earlier, I went outside to water my orchids. I almost gave this cutie a shower. Looking around, I found the mommy up on the tree. They were so good to camera, not moving at all. The mommy was a little concerned as she was turning her head every direction we moved.

    We had owls (mommy and chick) in my backyard 3 years ago, and it was July, and the chick was a little bigger than this one. So I am hoping they will hang around a little longer.

    Great photos. They'll do a good job keeping moths and caterpillers off your orchids !
