This morning on the wooded trail behind Bennett Elementary School: I heard this rustling, and saw him/her fly across to that branch. I stood still (while taking photos), she/he watched me suspiciously. Then when I tried to get a better angle , he/she flew a bit further away.
Makes me want to knit owl related garments... like a sweater, hat and fingerless mitts. Great way to start a morning of knitting!
