(Barry the Barred Owl agreed to a portrait sitting on the condition that I'd use that caption:). Actually, Barry's eyes are nictitating. Birds protect their eyes via this extra membrane, or third eyelid, which can be drawn across their eyes both to moisten the eye and protect it while retaining the ability to see).

Great shot! We've been hearing barred owls but have not seen them this year.
