Welcome to a photographic journey through the fields, woods, and marshes of New England

Here I’ll be sharing some of my favorite photographs from my forthcoming book Naturally Curious. I’ll be updating my blog periodically with new images, new stories, and more glimpses of New England in all seasons.

BARRED OWL COURTSHIP

Listen to the Barred Owl here:

I awoke in the middle of the night to the "who-cooks-for-you, who-cooks-for-you-all" call of a barred owl right outside my bedroom window. Courtship has begun for these birds of prey, right on time. In March or April, after breeding takes place, two or three eggs will be laid in the hollow of a tree, or perhaps a stump or the old nest of a hawk, crow or squirrel. Meanwhile, listen for the call of Vermont's most common owl

    Oh Mary, this picture of the Barred Owl is absolutely gorgeous. I listened to the little youtube video as well, simply beautiful. It makes me want to get ready to go for a walk. There is something infinitely soothing by being in nature, Certainly lessens the stress of work. Thank you for this!
