Barred Owl, Two Views

I’m reasonably sure that these two images are of the same Barred Owl. I first spotted him in a little glen  where I have previously seen a pair. It was late afternoon and as the sun got lower the light filtered through a gap in the trees behind me.

After a bit the Owl flew towards a small pond and I continued my walk. As I suspected the Owl didn’t go far, or his mate was here the whole time.  The trees were much denser and it was darker here, but still a nice view of a beautiful bird.

      1. You’re welcome. Your photos are beautiful and following your work for some time has brought back many pleasant memories of the few years we spent living in Jacksonville, FL quite close to the shore. Your owl reminded me of a visitor one evening sitting atop one of our bird feeders!

  1. I just love seeing photos of these owls, especially like in your 2nd photo where it looks to me like the owl has a warm scarf around its neck!

    1. Thank you! They do have camouflage on their side, and no doubt we’ve passed them many times without a clue 😆. If I hadn’t seen him fly to the second spot I’m sure I would not have seen him.
