We’ve been fortunate to have seen a Barred Owl at our lakeside home on three occasions recently. One evening after dark, it flew through our covered feeder and grabbed a flying squirrel with its talons. It took the squirrel to the deck, stayed there for a couple of minutes, and then carried its prey away, leaving a little crime scene behind. I was absolutely awestruck!
