In February we told the story of a great horned owl visiting our backyard. Before that day, we never saw or heard one in our yard. Today we had the privilege of a second visit.
This time it perched on a lower branch than before, and Jim was able to get some terrific shots.

And here is a short video to show a bit of personality.
We watched it as a cat roamed through our yard beneath it. The cat was lucky the owl wasn’t ready for dinner. Later a squirrel grazed under the bird feeder and similarly escaped a violent death.
It was quite a treat to see this beautiful bird.
