Barred Owl

Barred Owl

I was just getting ready to head to work and out of the corner of my eye, I saw this owl sitting above my power meter on the power pole next to the driveway. Fortunately I had grabbed by camera that morning. I was within 15 feet of this beautiful bird and it was quite aware that I was there. Sorry for so many pics of one bird, but these are the ones that I selected out of the 144 that I took. I found it odd that this owl was out during the day, but I later read that it is not uncommon for the barred owl to be active during the day. I also have heard that many owls are having trouble finding food because of the cold and all of the snow and are being forced to feed on road kill resulting in being struck by vehicles. That sucks!
