Barred Owl - Presqu'ile Provincial Park, Brighton, Ontario by 

“The Barred Owl (Strix varia) is a large typical owl. It goes by many other names, including eight hooter, rain owl, wood owl, and striped owl, but is probably known best as the hoot owl.

The adult is 44 cm long with a 112 cm wingspan. It has a pale face with dark rings around the eyes, a yellow beak and brown eyes. It is the only typical owl of the eastern United States which has brown eyes; all others have yellow eyes. The head is round and lacks ear tufts, a distinction from the Short-eared Owl. The upper parts are mottled gray-brown. The underparts are light with markings; the chest is barred horizontally while the belly is streaked lengthwise. The legs and feet are covered in feathers up to the talons." Wikipedia

    Love the way you composed this one, Michael. Sometimes a the bigger picture with the raptor in their natural environment really adds to the image, as it does here. Sweet!

  • I agree totally, Bill, if you only do full frame shots they get repetative after a while, I am tending to look for more habitat shots
