Whoo Can It Be Now?

Okay, so it's not the best nature shot you've ever seen. This is why the real nature photographers shell out top dollar for the really buff lenses. But I don't have $4,600.00 to spend so I wind up making do with the cheap gear. But anyway, this is the first owl that I've ever seen in the wild. He was just hanging out in a tree while all around, robins were going stark raving bonkers. (But they didn't seem to be mobbing the owl. Occasionally, a robin would fly past, and the owl would pursue for a few yards, but for the most part they simply sat in nearby trees and made a racket.) It may be a Barred Owl, but its vocalization wasn't a "hoot," so I'm not sure.
