This late afternoon (700 pm) in the Bethany woods, I thought I'd heard a muffled bark and replied with a Barred Owl call. I quickly found a Barred Owl calling away, perched out in the open about 50 meters away and 5 meters up. He arched his body and retched out a "Who-cooks-for-you-all..." repeatedly, with his feathery muffler shaking, all while I was in plain sight. After a couple minutes, he silently jumped the branch and disappeared in a couple enormous wing flaps.
'The most intelligent and entertaining conversation I'd had all day!
