Barred Owl

Barred owl

At Witty's Lagoon near Victoria, BC. Thanks to my sister Clare for spotting it.

Barred Owls are an regarded as an invasive species on the west coast and are partly blamed for the decline of the endangered Northern Spotted Owls.

It was difficult to get a decent photo - it was a long way away for the lens I had (this has been cropped substantially) and the forest was a mix of dark shade and bright patches of sun. And it soon turned its head away from us.
