WALLBURG, N.C. -- Leigh Gill of Wallburg has had a barred owl showing up in his yard almost every evening since Father's Day.

The owl moves around to various places where he often perches and hunts for June bugs.

Leigh is a photographer and has gotten some amazing photos of the bird that he’s posted on his Facebook page.

He’s also gotten some phone video of the owl, but we got some fantastic shots with our camera including close ups of him hooting.

We also caught a shot of the owl as it made a low pass right over Leigh’s head.
