Came home after errands to see this nice big Barred Owl surveying the couple acre lawn below it. Pity the mouse or vole that ventures out today!
Got 'im going away too...guess he didn't appreciate my company!
Wonder if its the same one that likes to set up shop right outside the bedroom window on the occasional night and hoot. and hoot. and hoot. The call sounds like "Who cooks for you....Who cooks for you all?" No, really, it does.
