The establish pair of Barred Owls at Magnolia Plantation had two chicks this year but it seems just one survived once they left the nest which I featured yesterday in my post Barred Owl Owlet.
This is one of the parents that was watching from 100 feet (30 Meters) away.
I got distracted from photographing while pointing out the adult, then the chick, to an interested passing couple. One of them had never seen a live owl of any kind and was extremely excited, which made my day.

How kind of you to take the time to help the couple see the owls. I’m sure it made their day and they’ll probably always remember the encounter!
Thanks, Liz. I do like to share when folks are interested and respectful of nature, which is not always the case!
