Look hard and you will find owls in trees during the day. You’ve just got to know what to look for. This Barred Owl was taking a nap and its presence meant that we didn’t see any other owl variety that are normally found in the area. Shame that, though I did appreciate this wonderful bird for its own beauty. It’s obvious how it gets its name. Difficult to see the head when taking a photo from the ground though!
