ok I do not know how to do this but this is the link to pics I just took of the evil looking owl. I swear it has an inverted cross on its head.
he Barred Owl hunts by waiting on a high perch at night, or flying through the woods and swooping down on prey. It generally hunts near dawn or dusk, though it may also hunt on cloudy days. It may fly even in full daylight when disturbed. Of the North American owls, it is the species most likely to be active during the day, especially when raising chicks.
Imprinting is a term that describes how many animals decide ‘who they are’. It is a critical behavioral process in a growing animal and occurs during a period in which the young establish the concept of “parent” and “self”. Taking place early in life, it is an irreversible process. The period varies between species; ducklings imprint when 13-16 hours old while large birds of prey imprint between 2 and 5 weeks of age.
Under normal circumstances, imprinting establishes a strong bond between the young and their parents. Under less ideal circumstances, imprinting causes a young animal to recognize itself as human when raised inappropriately. Once that damage has been done, the likelihood of being able to release such an animal back to the wild is low and suitable options in captivity are rare and less than ideal.
Can or should I feed it something. I would think that would make it around even more. I have more pics from last night if you want me to post them

Don't let it indoors with you. That will signal someone close to you will die. The 3 instances in my life a bird has flown indoors with me... it has signalled the death of someone in my life within the following 24 hours.

I've got a few crows that follow me sometimes on my early morning walk through a eucalytus grove. Some mornings they fly from tree to tree above me caw-ing and caw-ing... I really do wonder what they are trying to say.
