I wasn’t sure this was a Barred Owl at first as the color was so dark. Looking at the images closer up it was clear it was and that he was soaking wet.
A few crows were harassing him, and he Swooped to another tree.
He didn’t go far, picking another spot in the morning sun to help dry off.

These are unique shots, Ellen, I love them!
Thanks, Donna! This was at the very beginning of our boat trip at Okefenokee just after seeing a RSH and I would have been content if that had been all we had seen. And delighted that it got way better!
WOW!!! That flight photo is absolutely astonishing, Ellen! The light through his feathers makes this image really spectacular.
Thanks, Carol! So glad that you liked it.
