Walney Park Today. Barred Owl North Loop Trail

DSC_0628

After my feeding program Mike and I were gearing up to go out and patrol trails.  As we prepared to leave, a visitor arrived with a worm snake stuck in an insect glue trap.   Just as we were able to free the animal from a slow miserable death another visitor walks in this time with a female garter snake stuck in a similar trap. As with the worm snake,  Mike and I were able to free the garter snake with minimal injury.   Both appear to be doing much better but are somewhat inhibitied in their movements from remaining glue goo residue on their bodies.

Finally we were able to get underway for a quick walk along the north loop trail. That’s when we stumbled upon this Barred Owl in the thick pines and cedars (photo above)
