  1. Hi, I caught pictures of this owl watching a pond for 20 minutes around midnight. This is in central Virginia, in a small clearing (next to a small pond and a wood pile) in the midst of a very large hard wood area, taken in early December. There is a larger barred owl that frequents this area, but this owl is quite a bit smaller. What is this? Thanks for your help and expertise!
  2. Hi, We caught this picture of a bird on the ground. It's tail is longer than it looks (it blends in great with the ground). This is in central Virginia, in a small clearing (next to a small pond and a wood pile) in the midst of a very large hard wood area, taken at the end of November. There is a barred owl and a red shouldered hawk that frequent this area. What is this? Thanks for your help!
  3. Yes, that's very close to what it sounded like! Thank you so much!
  4. Hello and thank you in advance for your help. We've got pictures of this owl twice, two weeks apart, by a small pond and wood pile in a clearing in a large wooded area in central Virginia. This picture was taken a few days ago. I may have heard this owl too (although I guess it's possible I heard a different owl). What I heard, coming from the direction of this owl at the time this picture was taken, was a single hoot, very loud, about 1 second long, the sound like "hoo" without the "h", rising then falling slightly in pitch. This was repeated two more times with about 10-15 seconds between the repetitions. Please let me know your thoughts about what it is!
  5. We have two pictures of a hawk in Central Virginia taken this month (August, 2018). The hawk landed in a mostly dead pine tree, about 12 feet high overlooking a small water hole (where we've seen hawks land before, so we have a trail camera aimed at the spot). This is in the midst of a few hundred acres of woods behind rural housing. The hawk was on these perches for about 20 minutes. Thank you for your help to identify what type of hawk this is!
