Barred Owl
Muir Woods NM
eBird - Casual Observation, 0mins,

We took the visiting Illinoisans to see the big trees and to look for banana slugs. We certainly didn't expect a gorgeous owl to come zooming out of the undergrowth and perch prominently on a open branch in front of dozens of park visitors. What a moment.
