At dusk yesterday an owl came to visit. It was perched above a bird feeder in our back yard gazing out at the pond. It’s head turned as we watched, surveying the landscape. The owl sat there for over five minutes before flying off over the water. While we’ve heard owls nearby before and seen them on rooftops, they usually come later in the evening making them even harder to see. Here was this owl however, looking out and embracing the day’s end. How fortunate that we were able to catch a glimpse of this majestic creature before dark.
