Superb Owl Sunday

Bubo virginianusJoined David Burg of WildMetro and others for a Superb Owl walk today. Here’s one of a pair of nesting Great Horned Owls (Bubo virginianus). The mate was quite close by in a vine.

The ground beneath was littered with evidence, including white wash (droppings) and pellets like this one, thrown up by the little owl. Composed of the bones and fur of mammal prey, the bits the bird can’t digest. Indigestible, like so much of America right now.

    Thank you, Matthew. I love your daily posts. They keep my faith in humanity and I love how you remind us every day we must rid ourselves of the scourge upon us
