The ranger had his spotting scope available for visitors to see the owl. I put my camera up to the eyepiece and managed to get this photo (taken at 40x magnification). It was a cool February day, so the owl had fluffed his (or her, I can't tell the difference!) feathers to trap in air to stay warm. What a wonderful treat it was to see this owl! Earlier we had also seen a Pileated woodpecker and a coyote. It was a very good day for spotting wildlife! :)
