Barred Owl

Recommended Posts

beauty shots, owls are the ones we struggle to capture  - we have pair a saw whet's that call to each other  most nights but finding them in the day has proven impossible so far

Your probably looking to high,  look for them in pine trees about eye level but they are the size of a beer can and usually close to the trunk

If you want loons and mallards and divers, there are tons here right now. I didn't have the camera. It was cool to see the different clans.The loners would work their way into them and do the rituals, then become a member.

Even watched a loon fly low right through the hoard of fowl. Never hit one. I was amazed.

Owls are the coolest.

Great pics. Barred Owls are cool.

Looking for saw-whets at eye level is a great approach but the last one I saw a couple of weeks ago was about 30 feet up a conifer. It was only found because someone heard a woodpecker alarm call and went to investigate.
