Christmas owl

Looked out one of my kitchen windows (at the nice ocean view to the left of the owl, out of this photo) this morning while I was making tea and only noticed the owl when it swiveled it’s head. It looks like good camo but it was actually pretty brown and the tree grey. It stayed for a couple of hours, waiting for a vole or squirrel to pop out of the stone wall under the tree. It was about 5 meters/15 feet outside the window.
