“This guy glided across the trail only feet in front of me at Plymouth Bog, a Maine Wildlife Management Area. It gave me quite a start. It landed on a branch perhaps 10 yards into the woods and 15 feet high. As I bobbed around trying to get a shot, the owl seemed also to be bobbing its head around trying to get a clear look at me. All’s fair, I guess. Isn’t Maine a great place?” —Photos of Barred Owl by NRCM member Dave Small of Old Town, Maine.
