Bird Pic Of The Week

Barred Owl

(Strix varia)

Where: Richmond, VA • Wetland Section of James River Park System

Notes: Earlier this year, this Barred Owl sat at the entrance to a cavity in a Sycamore Tree not far from the banks of the James River at Richmond. Glancing down, perhaps it heard a rodent on the ground from its hollow perch or saw movement on the forest floor below. This Medium sized owl measures around eighteen inches in length and has a just under a four foot wing-span. They are known for their occasional daytime activity and rhythmic calls. This owl's diet consists mainly of rodents, but will occasionally take a bird or even a fish, if opportunity presents itself. This species prefers dense woods from Canada, to the eastern United States, and southward into Central America; its range has even begun to spread to the western United States in the past few years. Recent studies show suburban neighborhoods can be ideal habitat for barred owls, scientists found that populations increased faster in suburban settings than in old growth forests. But this advance in their population is usually off-set by collisions with automobiles.

Virginia Wildlife Magazine- 2016 Annual Photography Issue

Cover Shot

I am humbled and honored to have this photo adorn the cover of the 2016 annual photography issue of Virginia Wildlife. I have to admit, when I first saw it, I was in a state of disbelief. A surreal sort of moment (or two). When I realized my eyes were not tricking me, gratitude filled my heart for the journey that made this achievement possible. From my fourth grade teacher who connected me with lifelong mentors in the Lynchburd Bird Club at the age of nine, to my loving wife-partner-friend Lori who supports me in all endeavors. And the Cedar Waxwing photo on the inside was icing on the cake. Special thanks to the creative staff at Virginia Wildlife for keeping with the tradition of this favored issue.
