Only rarely do I see a Barred Owl, and often someone else spots one for me. And yet, this owl does not migrate with the seasons, but confines itself to a space of about 10 km on a side. These pictures were taken today.
It usually hunts from a perch and catches most of its prey at night. During the daytime, it is often sleeping.
But, it will occasionally awaken to view the world with its soulful eyes.
