Well, this isn’t something you see very often. This handsome great horned owl was sitting on top of a broken off tree, entirely out in the open this past weekend.
This is not normal behavior however, it became pretty apparent what may have been the cause. A crow was nearby, making a huge ruckus at the owl – that is where the owl’s attention is focused. I suspect the owl was originally hidden but the crow discovered it and chased it out.
The encounter was fleeting as the owl soon fled back into a thick stand of trees, undoubtedly to try to escape its tormentor.
