More of the new stuff in my Etsy shop. Here's what I wrote about this Barred Owl.
A few years ago, a Barred owl started showing up at night in the apple tree outside our kitchen window. At first we were amazed that an owl would come so close to the house. He would sit quietly in the tree as I took photos of him. After a few nocturnal visits by our avian friend, we realized that the goldfish population in our nearby pond was slowly dwindling! A quick internet search revealed that yes, Barred owls DO occasionally dine on goldfish. This little artwork depicts Mr. Barred Owl scheming on how to procure his next golden meal. Freeloader!
