Owl or other large bird?


Recommended Posts

Not putting too much hope in species ID from these photos - but wondering if I could say for sure whether this is an owl species (would be my first) or not!

When: around 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 10, dusk
Where: in the Poconos mountain region of PA, flying near a small lake
What: short, stocky bird with large wingspan. Initially thought it was osprey or heron but size was not right. Buff to cream-colored bird, patterns hard to discern at night but can see slightly in phtoos. Lazy wingbeats. Seen near area with mallards, warblers and kingbirds.
