January 14 Bird of Prey

January 14 Bird of Prey, originally uploaded by NedraI.

On my way home from work I decided to take a different road hoping to find something to shoot. When I spotted this big bird sitting on the wires I first assumed that it was a hawk. I was so surprised to see that it was an owl. I quickly changed lenses and quietly got out of the car. He glanced at me and then turned his head and then took off. I guess he didn't feel like being photographed today. If I crop the shot the picture shows it's poor quality. I forgot to check the ISO in my excitement. Oh well, I'm just happy to have my first photo of an ow. I hope it won't be my last. I know nothing about owls. Does anybody know what kind this is?
