Barred Owl at Parker River Wildlife Refuge

On my way home from NH yesterday we took the back roads through Rye, Salisbury and Newburyport to see if we could see any snowy owls hanging about.  We didn’t find any snowys but we were lucky enough to catch the Barred Owl that has been sighted at the Parker River Wildlife Refuge at the Hellcat Trail.   He was tucked in behind a bunch of branches but he was content to just sit and bask in the warm sun…and we were content to sit and watch him!

      1. He was still there on Monday, too, but your photos are much better. He was in the same area, but set back deeply in the marsh, amongst a plethora of sticks and twigs. I would not have spotted him by myself if not not for the help of the fellow onlookers.
