We have a daily visitor in our yard at 18 Eldon Ct, just north of the Peterborough Golf and Country Club in Peterborough.  This Barred Owl comes to visit usually once or twice a day.  It is able to sit in the line of trees along Thompson Creek and spot its meals on the lawns nearby. It seems to ignore the neighbours’ dogs. Here are some pictures I took on December 2.
