Barred owl looking backward .  He's been swooping around the yard lately, I suspect there's some damn good feeding out there right now.  The ground is cold and wet and muddy and if any fool mole or vole sticks its head up, there's mister owl, waiting   If this is our January thaw it's about three weeks early, but, then, we did have an early cold spell, too.  Split the difference, I'm cool with that...

    A barred owl is a big feather bed, and weighs about 22 oz, which is about a lb and a 1/2.

  4. He seems to have taken up a kind of territorial residence here, almost every morning we see him swooping by. it's kinda neat. And yes, I like owls too. Tastes like chicken.
