Sometimes in the Cypress woods of Corkscrew Audubon Swamp in S. Florida we see Barred Owls active during daylight. Their calls echo thru the woods. Last time there were 4 Barred Owls. It is fun to show them to others in my scope, along the boardwalk. Sometimes they're so close to b'walk you don't need a scope.

As I approached in the car it dropped to the ground out of a pine, sat with its feet buried in the snow for a minute, then took off and flew to the southwest. I've heard them calling from our woods back in the Fall, but I never expected to come across one foraging in the daytime!
