Over a year ago, we photographed a dead barred owl, tangled up in a bait line not far from where the owl above was perched. Soon after that incident we camped at Womack Creek campground and did not hear the sounds of barred owls calling.
On April 11, 2018, paddling upstream we saw this barred owl, well camouflaged. Later we either saw the same owl or another.
Hopefully, campers will hear the sounds of a pair of barred owls calling across the creek.
