Owls!

Monday night around 5:30, Zoe, Rhyan, and I were outside playing football when we heard some shrieking and squawking from across the street.  So of course I ran and grabbed my camera!  The first thing I saw was a dove, which was a little disappointing, and then I saw a Great Horned Owl in our across-the-street neighbor’s yard!  As we looked around some more, Zoe spotted a juvenile, Rhyan spotted another juvenile behind some branches, which rendered it unphotographable, and I found an adult.  They were all calling back and forth to each other with harsh screeches from the babies and almost soothing reprimands from the parents.  Neither of the calls sounded owlish, which is why I was surprised to see who was making them.  During the whole rest of the night I could hear them, which worried me a little when I had to take my plump, juicy, defenseless puppy outside. 🙂  Other than that, it was such a cool experience!  And now I know I have owls around my house!  If I get any more pictures I’ll post them.  Here are the ones I took then.
