Barred Owls with Sony 200-600

October 19, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I spent a morning on Blue Cypress lake with Ron Bielefeld of Whistling Wings shooting Barred Owls.  It turned out to be a very special experience with several owls and great light.  We were shooting from Ron's customized pontoon boat.  Just a word about Ron.  He knows the photo ops in the area!  Before sunrise we pulled up to a tree, put out a speaker to call the birds and said when the sun hit the horizon he would call the birds.  Then he pointed to the branch it would land on and told us to get ready.  There were four of us on the boat and everyone raised their lenses.  The sun hit the tree, the speaker called the owls, the owls answered and shortly flew right to the branch.  I would have thought this was luck but he repeated it two more times in different locations.

Here are a few of my favorites from my gallery:
