Barred Owlet at Ravenswood From Bill O’Connor

Hi Joey,

We had a nice walk through Ravenswood Park this past Sunday, and even though it was pretty wet, we still had a great time!  We were fortunate enough to see the barred owlet perched on the edge of the tree he temporarily calls home. When I scoped the trees with my telephoto lens, I saw the mother owl in the next tree over keeping a close watch!  In the wider shot, you can see the mother blurred in the background near the left edge of the photo, and the owlet on the right edge.

Ramona Latham, Ravenswood’s Program Director,  seems to think he’s getting ready to spread his wings!  When he does, he’ll leave the nest and head deeper into the woods.
