Barred Owl Stretching A Leg

I believe this is the same Barred Owl I posted about a few days ago (Barred Owl Hunting A Roadside Ditch). It was near the same ditch.

How I Got The Shot: Barred Owl Stretching A Leg

The Barred Owl was in an area that I couldn’t see it when I first drove by. I spotted it on my return trip. 

It was near the four-corner intersection of the auto tour road (Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge).

I had my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.

Barred Owl Hunting A Roadside Ditch

I was driving the auto tour road at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma when I spotted this Barred Owl. The ditch was full of water, so I’m guessing it was catching Crayfish. I have seen and photographed Barred Owls with Crayfish during this time of year.

Barred Owl Preparing To Dive

I photographed this Barred Owl yesterday at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. It was preparing to dive at people walking on the road. It must have a nest nearby. Everyone left the area when they noticed they upset the Owl, me included.

I was standing outside my pickup hand-holding my camera and lens. This was in an area where the road passes through a slough. A pair of Barred Owls have been nesting in this area for the past few years. This is the first time I have seen one upset and I think this is because we were outside our vehicles.

Barred Owl Standing On The Roadway

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.

Adult Barred Owl

This is a parent of the young Barred Owl I posted a photo of yesterday with the Crayfish (Young Barred Owl With Crayfish). It kept watching the water below the tree looking for Crayfish. It never left this spot while I was photographing here for over an hour.
