Wildlife Photos from 12/25/12 – Peach Hill Park

Barred Owl

Barred Owl

We got a light dusting of snow on Christmas morning, I figured I would get out and take some landscape photos at Peach Hill Park.  I also looked for wildlife during my short walk.

I’ll cut right to the highlight, a barred owl sighting!  This was the second time I’ve seen a barred owl at Peach Hill Park this year (last time was the day before Hurricane Sandy).

This was also the second time I’ve ever found a field sparrow in the winter.  Other than that, I saw the typical winter birds on my walk, like cardinals, juncos, chickadees, titmice and white-throated sparrows.  I have all my shots in the attached gallery.
