I returned to the Owl area about an hour after taking the images in my post Barred Owl, Cozy In The Sun to find the Owl in the same spot, perhaps shifted a bit with the sun.
Barred Owls haven’t been spotted in this immediate area for months and I wondered if this was one of the parents of last year’s Barred Owl Owlet . And also if the mate might also be around.
I wandered around the small pond and saw a large white splat on the ground. Looking up, there s/he was.
Because the two owls were so close together, maybe 150 feet (45 Meters) I’m reasonably sure they are a couple. An interloper, even last year’s young, would be driven off.
