An Illustrated Life List: Barred Owl

I've gotten to know this Barred Owl pretty well this winter.  It's been hanging out at the nature center I work, occasionally interacting with the injured Barred Owl we care for there.  Yesterday it was perched on the broken limb of an oak in plain sight.  It seemed to be half asleep most of the morning, barely cognizant of the many people coming and going (it was perched right near a well traveled trail).

By mid-afternoon the owl disappeared, I presume into a hole in the tree, just before the wintry rain came.
