There's always something going on even though yesterday was a dreary day, grey, drizzly and then rain. An ISO 2000 kind of day. The owl was a brown blob on a brown blob next to the brown bark. Cozy. It stirred awake when a military helicopter flew overhead. For children, there's nothing better than those leaves. The Parks Department has staff in the park raking leaves. Seems like a futile effort to me.
