I just returned from a walk (3:00 pm on Wed afternoon) on our property and sited what I think was a Barred Owl. It was quite large - fortunately, I had my camera with me captured a nice photo. I'm a novice at this birding, but I was able to enlarge the photo to help with identification and I'm 95% confident that's what it was. Wish I could upload the photo.
