[Tweeters] Barred owl attack? Why now?

I was struck by a Barred owl several years ago.
Four small puncture wounds in my scalp. Uncharacteristically, the owl flew toward my face instead from behind me. Was like being struck on the head, hard, with a large stick. Because it drew blood, I called my MD. He said it was important that I had a recent Tetanus shot. Let her know.

It was a good 6 inch scratch with a couple of punctures as well. I understand they are territorial around nests but why would an owl attack now?
