17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Profile image of a Northern Spotted Owl

This is a photograph of one of the few remaining spotted owls in Washington State. Out of the hundreds of owl surveys I completed this past summer, I only had two detections of spotted owls, making this encounter quite special.
