I heard a strange bird sound last night. I went in search of it and found a Barred Owl. Tonight Samantha and I went to get the mail (delivery is now close to 6pm each day…sheeesh!) and heard the same strange sounds again. As we were walking down the driveway, we looked up and saw this guy.
There was another Barred Owl, and Samantha kept saying “maybe they are going to mate!” I asked what that meant and she said “you know, lay eggs.” I returned to taking pictures at that point.
They hunt at dawn and dusk, so I am guessing this guy was looking for some dinner. They nest in old hawk’s nests, which are plentiful in our woods. I do love living in the woods. Even going to the mailbox is interesting 🙂
