Finding Barred Owls

Today I went back to Del Arvin's property in Lafayette hoping to get more pictures of Northern Saw-whet Owls. Unfortunately, there was not one in a good position to be photographed. As we drove around the property on his Gator, we found a couple of Barred Owls and one was in good enough position to take a few pictures.

Can you see the owl in this picture?

Even though I didn't get to take any pictures of a Saw-whet today, I still had a great time. The bird of the day for me was my first Yellow-rumped Warbler of the year!

Hi there. Nice pics of the Barred Owl. This past Sunday my wife, Jean, and I also came upon a Barred Owl in Rouge National Park, near Markham, Ontario. This was the second time in six weeks that we have come upon, and filmed, an owl out in the wilds. The first was a Saw-Whet Owl. Prior to these two sightings, we had never seen an owl in its natural habitat. Needless to say, it has been an exciting six weeks. Our pictures and video of the Barred Owl sighting are posted on our blog at: http://frametoframe.ca/photo-essay-barred-owl-sighting-markham-ontario/
