A haven for creatures great and small, Whidbey Island harbors everything from orcas to osprey, humpbacks to hummingbirds. The abundance of wildlife can make the photographic possibilities seem overwhelming. As such, Declan Travis was excited to learn there were owls in the wooded acres surrounding his home on South Whidbey. Here the barred owl, or Strix varia, is thriving and expanding the west coast real estate of what was once considered an eastern bird. The success of the barred owl sometimes comes at the expense of other species, like the spotted owl, and it has a reputation as an aggressive bird prone to attacking people. These issues are serious and complex, deserving much discussion. Many articles have been published, and a cursory search will yield a wealth of information on barred owls...they might even appear in your local news coverage. That being said, within the confines of this humble show, filled with photographs of barred owls, Declan wishes only to share with you some of the highlights of his experience living among them. Perhaps for a moment, maybe just a split second, they will inspire in you, brave viewer, a little bit of the wonder that is at the heart of understanding...and beauty.
