Wow, what luck! Not one…or two (seen here) but THREE juvenile Barred Owls in Forest Park. We were riding back for the night, nearly finished with our ride when we saw a large bird fly in front of us. Then a second. As we stopped to take photos, a third owl perched right above our heads. All three were making screeeeeeeches every 10 seconds or so as if they were calling for another. Maybe calling for the parents to feed them? They didn’t seem too phased by the two of us on bicycles or the 6 others that rode by. They stared, but never got jumpy.
