Quietly Waiting, Barred Owl

Barred Owls have been very busy this year. Besides returning to the small swamp ponds to hunt they nested and have young.

To date I have not taken any shots of an Owlet this year. Every time I see one it’s either too dark or far. However, Ellen has been searching for them more than me and does have a few youngster photographs.

Now that we are reaching the 95 (+) temperatures (35C +) I’m less inclined to brave the wet and bugs. However, I did commit to going this evening. Time to dig out the feather weight hiking pants.

This afternoon we braved the heat and humidity. It’s not bad…yet. Tropical heat is still away off. Mid afternoon all the locals sleep, this one included.
