Tyson Hockley really knocked it out of the park while capturing this close-up footage of a barred owl, especially considering he's only 12 years old. He came up with an idea to attract owls to the area by playing barred owl calls on a speaker, and his clever plan went off without a hitch! On top of filming his close encounter with a barred owl, he also captured footage of it vocalizing. Tyson clearly has a bright future ahead of him when it comes to making videos.
