Guess whooo came to visit?

Thought you might enjoy this photo of a Barred Owl that was sitting in the great big maple tree out in front of the inn.   I was walking my dogs the other day, around 4:30 pm, and there it was, just staring at me…I couldn’t believe it!  What was this owl doing out during the day??  I quickly put the dogs back in the house and came back with my camera; yup, still there.  I got about 20 shots of  it before it got annoyed and flew away.

Someone told me that owls hunt at night because they get harassed by all the other birds out during the day and not because they are truly nocturnal.  I’m not sure, but it was really a treat to see it up close like that.

Hope you enjoy it!
