Sunday Great Horned Owl

Crows Find A Great Horned

This morning, two mobs of crows converged on a Great Horned Owl, leading anyone birding in the area straight to the owl.  The owl took the invasion of crows in stride, elongating for only a few minutes before relaxing.  The crows brought with them a Cooper's Hawk who I've seen go after the crows on other days.  May the bounty of owls continue into 2019. 

(The two Northern Saw-Whet Owls that were horribly over birded on Sunday, were not found today.  Tweeting an owl's exact location, when someone can literally reach up and touch it to thousands of people, isn't the best idea.  While most of us have common sense, there are those who don't.)
