Al  --  Is its face turned toward the camera?  It appears to be.  At any rate, from its shape it looks like a young barred owl.  The adult barred owl would be about half a head taller, and the great horned almost a full head taller than this one appears to be, using the (4-ft?) fence as comparison.  Also, even though the blinds just might be hiding them, I see no horns on this feller's head, and the body shape looks like a barred's.  If it's a barred, you should hear it at night, calling, "Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-wah!"  Often sets the dogs barking. 
P.S.  I didn't know your wife is Republican.  Jud Haggerty, the former Democratic County Chairman of Marion County, Indiana, used to say that Republicans live with their blinds closed and don't need to; Democrats live with them open and should keep them shut.  --  Griff

Colleen   I have had trouble with rabbits biting the soaker hoses.
Squirrels!!! Last Monday a large bird flew past the family room windows and landed on the fence 15 feet from the window. Interested I got up,  looked and got the camera. I believe it is horned owl.. The pic is shot through the blinds.  I can't get my wife to keep the blinds up. Wednesday I saw her wafting across the sky and landing two houses down in tall tree. Friday I noticed the 3 or so squirrels were not raiding the bird feeders. This morning I verified NO Squirrels. Problem solved. Solution. One big owl. If she doesn't get the Squirrels she scares the bejesus out of them. They will be replaced.   The park is not far from Sterling Park.
