Barking Owl

The friend who showed me these Owls lives nearby and visits regularly. He has some great shots including the parents and 3 juveniles all lined up on one branch and one young one being fed a rat. They were always more spread out when I was there.

I was told that when the kids are old enough the parents take them way out west and then dump them so they don't compete with them around their nest area which they will keep using over the years.
