Uncropped view, about 10 AM
The owl didn't stay there.
Half hour later it flew to the opposite corner of the field and, when I returned at about 3PM, it was sitting in a tree on a slope bordering the wetland at the far edge. I took this photo from behind the stores on the Aubuchon Plaza above the field.
Shortly after the owl took off and flew to perch on a log in the West River. Just as I got there it took off again and seemed to disappear into the woods above the Retreat on the other side of the river near Rte 30. On a hunch I decided to drive to the parking lot in back of Retreat to look down on the water from above and found it again perching on some brush in the water.
Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment.
