14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mommy Barred Owl and offspring

Barred Owls nested in a Beech Tree in the woods behind our house. I took this picture in May 2016. A few weeks later the babies started to fly for short flights between the trees as Mommy watched. Then before we knew it, they were gone.
