Barred Owl

Amherst Island, Owl Woods

On the walk in to Owl Woods I spooked this owl (fitting reversal of roles) and watched him fly up to this perch. If I hadn't followed his flight I would never have seen him, he was so well hidden. After I set up the scope I had to search the tree carefully to pick him up again. It was mid-morning, cloudy and cool. I was able to observe him until some other birds began to put up a racket and he flew off.
