Front yard Great Horned Owl

One morning in January as we ran out to run an errand, we spotted a Great Horned Owl hanging out in the tree in our front yard. First, he was chomping down on some other bird he caught in the neighborhood (hard to tell what, it’s mostly black, so perhaps a starling), and later, he was just snoozing. Not rare, but fun to have in the yard!

  1. Maybe not rare, but it's always a treat to see an owl. Our Great Horned Owls in NC tend to have tawny faces. Judging by his face, you must be somewhere out west! Thanks for sharing!
