Barred Owl

A barred owl had some sort of prey just off the road in the underbrush.  We were driving by in a golf cart and must have startled the owl, and it startled us as it flew from the ground to a tree.  We stopped and watched it for a few minutes, until it seemed to get a little annoyed and started moving from tree to tree, getting closer to us (and its prey).  We moved along so it could get back to its meal.
