Ventured out to a NW Gate this morning. Fog was fairly heavy when I started hiking.
This is a Barred Owl Chick. Still many weeks from being a fledgling. As much as I wanted to help I would have let nature take its course.
One of the adult Barred Owls was overhead keeping a watch on things.
The Scarlet Tanger on the title page made for a nice way to end the morning
