Who Cooks For You?

This beautiful barred owl was hanging out over the restroom building at the St. Marks Refuge.


 if you click on the picture, you can check out the talons.




This was one patient owl as I snapped lots of pictures, most of which were not clear in the deep shade and with my lens extended.  I think this is the longest I have been able to observe a barred owl. We frequently hear and, sometimes see, them in our neighborhood but we cannot see them well for any length of time. This was a thrill.
