Young Barred Owl With Crayfish

By | June 3, 2020

I was photographing an adult Barred Owl when this young one flew to a tree nearby. An adult Owl brought it a Crayfish, but it dropped it after I took its photo. The young Owl starred at the ground where the Crayfish dropped for a long time but didn’t go after it.
