On our last trip up the St Johns River, we stopped at Hontoon Island and docked for the night. They have a nice museum and a video you should definitely watch if you are in the area. They have campsites and cabins for rent.
It was quite content to sit there for a few pictures..
I had my small poodle with me…she’s about the size of a small rabbit. Perhaps that was the attraction and kept it in the area. I can’t tell if it’s licking it’s chops or not.
I was surprised at how large the Barred Owl is, and that it has brown eyes where most other owls eyes are yellow.
