Spotted this Barn Owl at Lake Hasty in far southeastern Colorado

Today I birded Lake Hasty, a birding hotspot in far southeastern Colorado and was delighted to spot this Barn Owl. The pic below is the same pic as the one above which I cropped severely to enlarge the owl. (for more perspective I took the photo with my 300mm lens which is like 6X enlargement, on my Sony 6300 mirrorless camera.)  Click on each pic to enlarge more for closer viewing.
I felt bad for this owl as it was not welcome in the trees where other birds harassed it to get it to move on away from their territory. SeEtta
