Bird Pic Of The Week

Barred Owl

(Strix varia)

Where: Chesterfield County, VA • Henricus Conservation Area

Notes: This was taken near the James River along a woodland path on an early morning stroll with a fellow photographer. From the corner of my eye, I happened to catch the motion of a large bird's wing-beat as it flew through the forest canopy just behind us. I turned to see what had landed some forty feet up in the trees. Much to my surprise, there was one, no two, no three owls; two adults and one owlet! Apparently this adult had caught a rodent and was delivering it to the youngster for breakfast (left). The other adult owl was sitting on a branch not far from the baby. They looked at us, we took a few photographs and then continued our walk so the baby could get fed without our disturbance. Barred Owls eat a wide variety of foods including: mammals, birds, herps, fish, crayfish and insects. I was delighted with this encounter and to have witnessed a moment of this family's growth.
