What a beautiful Barred Owl. This was posted by Nate Barnes to the Maine Wildlife Group.

I get outside pretty much everyday except when it is really windy because it is so unpleasant trying to do anything in a stiff winter wind. Owls are such beautiful creatures it break my heart just a little to see this one get so buffeted in the wind. Still nature is tough and most likely he/she'll be fine.
