Barred Owl (Strix varia) at Fort Caswell, Brunswick Co., NC

Barred Owl (Strix varia)

This bird was just sitting on the lawn at Fort Caswell in between some buildings, looking just like a stump. This was around noon during the Southport Christmas Bird Count on 5 January 2002. Odd situation to find an owl - the bird may have been ill.
