07/28/15 Barred Owls in Acadia

Posted: August 11, 2015 in Uncategorized

Last year on a hike on the Jesup Trail, we spotted a barred owl. Of course, at that time I had no telephoto lens with me. This year we decided to take a look again. Well, no owl on the Jesup, but on the way back on the Hemlock Trail, we got lucky. One of the owlets was sitting on a branch directly over the trail. The little guy didn’t seem to mind. After some time it actually flew down just to our side. A few days later we went back to try again. This time we found “mommy”. I walked right past, but Sharon spotted her. They blend in with the trees so well. The Park Ranger said there were four owlets, we only saw the one. It was 2-3 months old.
