Two of us went out for the day looking for Owls. We only saw one but he displayed himself so well that it made up for a shortage in numbers.
Here's hoping you like him as well.

Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Hey Joe... great capture! What time were you at Presqu'ile? We stopped in on our way back from Amherst at about 3pm.

Thank you. I doubt if he's sad. Lots for him to eat where he is.

Barred often sit in hardwoods so are easier to spot than GHO, Long -eared or Saw-whets. Great Horned like tall pines and sit high. Long-eared Owls are in pines or cedars and sit low as do Saw-whets. Study the habitat where they hunt and keep looking.

We were there in the morning but didn't stay long. The light was lousy and the sun only broke through when I got home. Isn't that often the way? :(

Thank you Gary. This was the only one we saw today but he was out in the open without a branch in front of him. That doesn't happen too often. He didn't stay long either.

Thank you so much Anke. He is indeed a great bird.

Joe... There is a barred at Amherst now and it looks like it has killed 4 Long-ears. Boreal and 2 saw-whets are still alive.
