Several people have told me owls are a favorite bird of theirs. I imagine for every one who says so, there are a number of others who also like them - they're just not sayin'!
The screech owl of North America has two color phases: red-brown and gray. I painted this one in the reddish phase (since I like color). It's rather spooky to hear screech owls at night because they give out a mournful wail. Have you heard them?
See this or others of my bird paintings in my Etsy shop: Zehland.Etsy.com. Thanks for stopping by today!
