After a full day in the yard cleaning up yesterday’s fallen tree I was just about the head into the house when a bird flew right in front of me and landed in the nearby cedar. I peered in and saw what I thought was ababy owl; it seemed so small. It was already nearly dark but I grabbed my camera and did my best to get some photos. Only after I got them onto the computer and brightened them up a did I realize the little critter had killed one of the birds feeding on our patio and was apparently getting ready for a meal. I think it was a Northern Pygmy Owl.
