I guess this is off topic of gardening but I wanted to share.
When we went to get our new puppy we wound up in the backwoods east of Buffalo and I spotted this outside the truck window. It was hard to get because the sun was hitting the camera viewer,DH was driving along, I had the new puppy in my lap and began yelling stop! stop! He couldn't even spot it for a while. It sure is camouflaged well.
I believe it is a Great Barred Owl, the only owl with dark,not yellow eyes. From Wildlife
This is a better size to see the coloring on the back.
