The sun was just setting at the Washington County Grasslands when I spotted a Barred Owl sleeping in a tree. They can hunt during the day, but primarily hunt at twilight & during the night. The Barred Owl is one of the more common and one of our largest owls, standing 16 to 23 inches tall with a 38 to 45 inch wingspan.
