Young Barred Owl
My friend Heather and I went on a roadtrip through New England this summer. We spent a couple of nights tent camping on top of Mount Philo in Vermont. We realized halfway through the stay that our camp neighbors included several juvenile owls. They would perch in the trees surrounding our clearing and screech at each other. From time to time we would see one swooping low through the trees to catch something (no doubt the mice that campers attract).
I used one of the photographs I had taken up on Mt. Philo as my painting reference.
