Back again

Back into the files. December 25, 2005. Sweet owl in tree just off path.

Also hidden in tree corner.

The owl had taken a swipe at the titmouse who had been pestering it. Titmouse mortally injured, in death throes on ground. Very hard to watch. One of the birders finally picked it up and took it to a quiet corner to die in peace.

Older camera, but the images capture what happened that day. Thrilling and sad.
