I’ve been trying to get a good picture of our night owl for years. She is magnificent. Every night I know she is out there by the lulling sound she makes. Lulling to me, and maybe to her prey it means something else like “Come here little animal, so I can eat you. Bahahahahaha!”
Well, last night, I happened to be in the right place at the right time. I saw movement and watched the owl swoop out of the sky and swipe something from the tree trunk. I was hoping it was a rat, but she took it to the branch of the the tree, and ate it. There were no pieces hanging out of the beak resembling a rat. There were no pieces resembling anything, so I am going to assume it was a lizard. K?
After eating, she sat on her perch singing, and I snapped pictures. I couldn’t get to my ladder, and had to hold the camera. This was one of the better pictures. Isn’t she magnificent?
I wonder where she sleeps during the day. She keeps the hours of vampires.
