Barn Owl spotted on The Sea Ranch in the middle of the day – a very unusual sighting!

Rich Kuehn's neighbor on The Sea Ranch called him to come over and see if this large Barn Owl was doing okay. When Rich got there it was perched on a fench and nodding off. Rich theorized she - yes, it's a female - was hunting for her young, which a nocturnal Owl such as this usually does at night. But if needs be, a mother will do what she has to do.
