A Quick Nap

Sleeping Barred Owl

Bob Gore

Barred owls are regular residents of Ivy Creek.  I remember warm days in the fall when I would leave the door open to the Education Building and listen to them call from the woods.  Their "who cooks for you" call was one of the first bird calls I learned to identify years ago and still makes me stop everytime I hear it.  Bob Gore caught this Barred Owl parent taking a quick afternoon nap.  Something I imagine home-schooling parents everywhere can relate to these days.
