Barred Owl

While volunteering at Wickiup this morning, one of the naturists asked me if I had my camera with me as there was an adult Barred owl, out back, near the bird blind. Well, of course I had my camera with me.

There was a bird banding workshop going on at Wickiup, and the owl, a mere 20' away, was watching the capture nets very closely. The volunteers were always around, so the owl did not get a chance to enjoy an easy meal.

Canon 80D, 100-400 lens at 400mm, ISO 400, f/5.6. 1/2500 sec, hand held.
