We have heard owls in Lake Forest Park for a number of years, but we have not seen one during the day until recently.

On April 7, around noon, we noticed a Barred Owl perched on a branch just off our deck.

It remained there for seven hours.

We saw it again the next evening as it sat watching us through the window.

Later, there were two owls. We are not able to see a nest, but have learned the Barred Owl is known to move into the nests of crows or squirrels.
