This Eastern Screech Owl was photographed in the front yard of a Carrollton residence. This particular house has a number of Cypress trees in its yard. The owl first attracted our attention as he moved from tree to tree. He utilized the lower branches of the Cypress trees as he navigated across the front yard.

During the photography session, the owl allowed us a close approach and did not seem to mind the attention, but he never stayed in one spot for long. The observation ended when the owl moved too high up in a tree to be photographed any longer.
