Remember that post about the Barred Owl I did a few weeks back? I thought it looked like a paper wasp's nest from a distance, at first? Well, he's back, but at a different roost. A better roost...way better!
On Friday, I took to the woods to try out my lens that had been ill. It was overcast, (aargh!) but I had to make sure the focus worked properly. I checked the regular roost spot of the owl, but he wasn't there. I checked a potential screech owl hole, and out of the corner of my eye, I see something out of place. Lo and behold, it was my barred, but he was NOT so well camouflaged against his chosen tree. Hmm...I wonder if he has used this roost before? I will keep my eye out for this new spot. Although it was a gray day, seeing this owl and testing my focus on him was an honor.
Two owls in one weekend...Now that is priceless!
