Startled

Barred Owl

A barred owl at Pohick Bay Regional Park in Lorton, Virginia. It was apparently sleeping under a little footbridge in the woods and when I crossed, it came piling out of there in a flurry and perched only a few feet away, looking around to see what was going on. I’m not sure who was more startled — me, or the owl. It was early evening, almost sunset, so in another hour or so the owl would have been awake and hunting for a snack anyway.
