Sometimes, birding happens when you don’t expect it. “Oh yeah, there are a couple of barn owls living out in the arena,” the co-owner of the farm where I ride said. WHAT?! See, with the nice weather I haven’t been in the indoor riding arena in a couple months. So I checked it out.
So wonderful. This is so happy making. He didn’t seem too bothered by my presence, but he did watch me the entire time I was watching him, no matter where in the arena I went.
