I’m not sure why this Barred Owl is standing on the roadway at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. It’s not injured because I waited for it to fly to a nearby tree. More than likely it was after a rodent or a rabbit crossing the road.

How I Got The Photo – Barred Owl Standing On The Roadway

I turned onto the road that leads to the Moody Boat Ramp when I spotted this Barred Owl. I exited my pickup hand-holding my camera and lens to photograph this bird.
