I ran into this Barred Owl in Robert’s Hill Conservation Area (Leeds, Massachusetts) What a beauty! It was first hard to see because it was high up on a dead snag (pics below) but then it flew right up to me and posed.
Here he is hooting at me. Sorry the image is on its side, I just bought a new camera and didn’t have time to read the instructions, oops.
