That would be eggciting to have Barred Owls raise a family where you live. Nice local friend!

i tend to look at the Tree tops everywhere i go.
This Tree had something tiny that looked like a Bird but could also have been a part of the branch.
But from the distance i was thinking Bird, & sure enough, it was!
It was getting late, it was windy & the light was dull,usually i try to photograph from the car so as to not scare away the Bird but this little one took zero notice of me.

january 22 2017 15:55 - Merlin





They*d fan their tail to balance in the Wind & i was trying to catch that.
The stripes were so cool to see.







The Canada Geese were honking in the field across the road & the Merlin looked to see what was going on.



Losing the light, time to go...

i was at work & didn*t notice that the Robins were alarming til someone else pointed it out.
i looked over there & saw the flutter of large wings.
A Barred Owl!
In a lovely shaft of sunlight.
Looking down a lot, looking for mice rats or snakes?

The Robins were dive bombing the Owl*s head.
 


Having a little snooze in the sun.

Three days later & the Owl is back!
This time the alarming of the Robins caught my ear so i went looking.
This appears to be the same individual.
Looking down again, rather than into the Robins* Nests.
i was reading about how the markings on their faces are each very different between individuals.
Someone on Hornby reported yesterday seeing a Barred Owl carrying a Snake twice, so they believe they have hatchlings now.
It doesn*t seem as though my nesting box got used this year, darnit.

We used to have larger variety of Owls on Hornby.
Human development made it easy for Barred Owls to move west & occupy the territory that humans occupy.
Other Owls didn*t cope so well.
Some people call Barred Owls invasive, but it is humans that are invasive.
