At 6:30 this evening, my 80 pound dog alerted me to a Barred Owl that was about 40 feet away, behind my house in a hay field. I saw the owl as it was flying away about 5 feet off the ground.
I highly suspect that it had gotten a vole for dinner and was on the ground with it. I hope the owl took his dinner with him, or comes back for it later.
My dog doesn't usually get excited about birds, since he watches them at my 8 feeders (sunflower hearts and suet) and on the ground (sunflower hearts and white millet) all of the time outside of the sliding glass doors, where his bed is conveniently located for frequent reality viewing, lol.
