Florida Barred Owls

Florida has lots of great birds in areas around its water treatment/water control ponds. Close to the main entrance to Everglades National Park, are two small hammocks of trees near a Storm Control/Water Management area.  The local birders call them the Lucky Hammock and The Annex on ebird.org.

At The Annex there were a pair of Barred Owls.  One perched on a powerline just after flyout and I got to watch the owl on two separate evenings for only a minute each night. 

Who would have thought it was easier to owl watch in Central Park?
