Hello Margaret,
I collect Barred owl “swoop” stories. I have had it happen to me at least seven times.
I am trying to better understand the details and conditions under which they do so. The conditions and reasons vary.
What time of day and under what light conditions did your friend have the experience?
Thank you,
Dan Reiff

Would the owl be starting nesting this early as that seems the only likely reason for such an attack?
