Barred Owl

Barred Owl Pair

One of these Barred Owls had been hunting unsuccessfully in the pond below then took a break with its mate. They rested awhile together, each did some personal grooming and then one moved to a separate branch.

Gradually they got further apart in that tree; unfortunately for me  the light was behind them. I stayed where I was expecting that they might still be hungry.

Soon one of them flew to a branch right over the water where it was still dim but the light was behind me. He was temporarily distracted by a Hawk calling overhead, but soon became focused on the water.
