Last week I found a dead mouse (or vole?) way up in our birch tree, and I figured it was left there by the owl I've heard hooting at night.
The other night I caught a glimpse of the owl high atop a neighbor's tree. Such a cool sight, and a little spooky! I think it's a Great Horned Owl, judging by its size and cute little "ears." I watched as he swooped down with an impressive wing span, right past the house.
