As we drove home from the YMCA it was breaking daylight and I kept slowing, staring at the sky changing colors and the trees black against the colors. I raced in the house, grabbed the camera and headed for the street to capture the scene. A few clicks and back in the house and Bob says WHERE WERE YOU? you missed the owl, he was sitting on our SWING, staring at me 4 feet from my face, he just sat there and I could not find you.
We hang our bathing suits and towels on the swing to dry for the day. There he sat and I MISSED him/her.
the video says they have 14 bones in their necks and can go 270 degrees around. They love street lights, because it draws bugs and moths. We have a street light in our yard, which explains why they sit in our trees. I have seen both of them a few times but always way up in the tree.
I MISSED this guy to get these...
