We saw the Barred Owl once again.

While walking back from a small hike, Pauline and I heard a group of American Robins crying in alert, the last time we heard this commotion was when we saw the Barred Owl, so we fallowed the noise and sure enough, we once again spotted the Barred Owl.

He was at first just above our heads, we walked right underneath him without seeing him until he took off into the thicker woods, once he did that, the Robins all started to bombard him, it appeared that the owl was even struck a few times, after a minute or two, the owl flew to another tree, and escaped the wraith of the Robins.

We slowly walked to where we could get a good view, and over a 15 minute time frame, we was able to get about 10′ from the tree the owl was in, he was about 12′ high in the tree, lucky for us, the iPhone took a few decent shots.

We plan to start walking in the area we have seen the owl around 8pm to see if we can get some better pictures of it.

About ToRn

Hi there! I am ToRn. I'm a "fortysomething" Dude who is ready for a new life style. The current one has become too boring and too predictable. So why not shake things up and get rid of everything we own and leave everything we know and move into a small box on wheels with the Big Red Wife and and our 2 cat's who could quite possibly be evil? I was born and raised in Indiana and spent part of Summer's in Minnesota. I lived 3 years in Washington and 3.5 year's in Florida and for the past 5+ years we have lived in the great state of Oregon! Which I now consider my home state. I have been to 39 State's as far, with all intention to visit all 50, as well as any and every National Park, Forrest and whatever else there is marked on a map between me and where I am going. Green is my favorite color.
