Here is email from a friend, Roger Rigterink, who’s spent most of his life in the upper Midwest–where we went to college together. Now he’s a fellow birder and it’s pulling him afield…as it does most of us. He and his wife were recently in Florida.
“Attached is the photo that I am most excited about. It is near impossible to spot a Barred Owl in a swampy forest. This owl was about 150 to 200 feet into a cypress forest. Someone had pointed the owl out to us the day before but I did not have my camera with me. It had moved about 30 feet the next day. Amidst the trees that did not make it all that easy to spot even though we had a general idea of its location.”
