I think this is a barred owl, but a birder I am not.
Shot in a friends front yard. Owl was pretty cooperative, the hardest part was trying to get a decent background without a lot of dappled light.
Beautiful bird.
Thanks

There are two young chicks on the ground. One is doing fine, the second is not going to survive. I did not venture anywhere near the chicks. The parents keep watch from the overhead trees- which puts them more in the open than usual. The lizard was eventually delivered to the area of the chicks- but I could not easily follow and not disturb the activity. I printed a couple of images for the neighbors, so I am not just the creepy old guy with a big camera. Hopefully more to come.
Thanks
Gary
