Owl vs Duckling Video

The last blog entry described how Barred Owls (Strix varia) were hunting Wood Duck (Aix sponsa) ducklings near the boardwalk in the old-growth swamp at the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest.  We were also able to capture a few minutes of video.

The Wood Ducks can barely be seen as they swim through the swamp, but the hen can be heard calling.
