Barred Owl found near Literary Walk

Barred Owl in Central Park -- photo by ALICE DEUTSCH

Judy Jamison, a birder I know from Steve Quinn's bird walks, wrote me this morning:
In CP 9:30 this a.m. between Literary Walk and the Drive, just south of Summerstage, I had no bins but saw large owl being mobbed by 6 noisy crows. Lamp post 6922.

Judy e-mailed another birder, Alice Deutsch, who went forthwith to the given location, identified the owl and took the great photo above.
