2022/23 Status Update: March 2nd , Lily is doing great, Dad (new male this season) is providing food, Mom is taking care of Lily. The unhatched egg is still unhatched and we suspect it will remain so.
Barred Owls are large owls that go by many names. Swamp Owl, Hoot Owl, and Wood Owl just to name a few.
We are lucky enough to share our space with a pair of Barred Owls that have grown to tolerate us. They seem to feel secure nesting within 30 feet of our house. We try to respect them and don't have any pets or domestic animals to complicate their life.
We hope to expand this content as time goes on.
