09/12/18 Barred Owl – Acadia Park

Posted: October 11, 2018 in Uncategorized

It’s been two months since I’ve seen any of the Barred Owl family that I follow here in Acadia Park. I searched many times with no success. But on this day, I had some luck and was able to locate one of the four owlets. I watched it stalk a small red squirrel up and down several trees. The squirrel was dangerously curious and approached the owlet several times. The first photo shows the squirrel a couple of feet away from the owlet. Either the owlet was not hungry or confused because it eventually let the squirrel go on it’s way. Since this day, I have heard the owls but have not seen them again. Hopefully they will give me the pleasure of seeing them one more time before I head back to the Jersey shore at the end of October.

    Your owls are a hoot! Terrific images, Ray.

  4. The photos are awesome! I hope you get to see the owlets again before you head back to New Jersey. We are still in the high 70’s (the endless summer), but I hear the temps will be dropping this weekend, finally. See you soon!

  5. More wonderful images for your owl coffee table book! 🙂
