A majestic Barred Owl takes a nap in a cedar tree in Ottawa, Canada. When he wakes up he preens a bit, then fluffs up as danger approaches.
When a bird watcher spotted a Barred Owl up in a cedar tree, he set up his camera to capture the beautiful creature. As he filmed, the owl woke up, preened after its nap, then looked around.
The Barred Owl is a true owl native to eastern North America. Adults are large and are brown to grey with the distinctive barring on the chest from whence they got their name.
