The Barred Owl at Sax-Zim Bog seemed content to hang out on its perch without much movement until its attention was suddenly drawn to the snow bank beneath the tree. Apparently, the sounds of a small rodent caught its attention. It peered intently at the snow for a few minutes. Then suddenly, it plunged into the snow, peered around for a few seconds, and realized it had caught nothing. The owl returned to its perch and relaxed again waiting for the next opportunity to feast.
