My Barred Owl is back. First time in months. At about 0730 it landed on a branch overlooking the feeder where there were a number of mouse tunnels. It kept looking down and then suddenly swept down and picked up a mouse from under the snow – a one claw pick – and flew off into the forest. It must have been able to hear the mouse, because there was no sign at the surface. Good winter bird.
