This owl wintered just north of Waterbury, Vermont. It had no fear of the people coming to visit. On the day I made a 3 hour drive to (hopefully) see this owl, it was front and center all day. Able to see some wonderful behavior and witness four successful hunts. At one point he landed with his prize less than 50 feet away on a low branch for some great views! Photographers and birders stayed on a worn path and the owl carried on his daily business with no worries or concerns at all. An amazing day.
