Barred owl update

Hi Everyone
Just an update on the Barred Owl that was sighted at supper time a couple days ago was back again tonight like clockwork and he decided tonight he was going to have supper also. In a swift swoop he grabbed a mole and flew back up into the tree and then flew off. Got a pic but it was quite dark. Will post as soon as i download it to my computer.
