Barred Owl

I caught a barred owl sneaking around the pond's edge one morning.  The crows spotted it shortly after I did and ran it off back into the woods.

It ran off and didn't fly? I love owls. We used to have burrowing owls but the foxes moved in and ate them one by one. It is a lovely picture.
You have such neat wild life where you live.

No, I meant it flew off back into the woods. :)

Wow. Burrowing owls must be neat. I've seen photos but that's all.

Oh NEAT!
I have a Great Horned Owl living around here that watches us...but have never seen this kind! They don't even look close to the same:)
And here I used to think an Owl just looked like an Owl;)
(Guess I better study up;)
Great capture!

Had a Great Horned calling this morning when I left the house for work.

I've never seen a Great Horned Owl, but we get a lot of these Barred Owls here. They're not shy at all and are often seen during the day. Plus they call and bark and squawk a lot.

You were lucky to get that shot.

That is such a nice shot. I have heard owls on our farm a few times, but have not seen one. I would love to.

HI there, just saw your blog from Small Town Life. First of all--your squirrel header is just awesome. We love squirrels and have a neat entry about a rescued squirrel on our farm. The barred owl is an amazing shot. Owls are so beautiful and hard to get pictures--great job :)

Is it unusual to see them in the day time? We have a great horned owl that sits on our light post every night, waiting for one of our hens to get out of the coop -- they'd actually have to wake up first! Great photo -- good eye!
