Barred Owl
Strix varia

Jacksonville, Florida Yard Bird # 7

The Owl and the Squirrel

When I first saw this, it appeared that the Barred Owl was going after the squirrel, but it turned out that the squirrel was actually running back and forth and "teasing" or tormenting the owl.

Finally the Barred Owl had enough and sprang into action.

Although the squirrel escaped, the Barred Owl looked content as it surveyed its domain.
