Early Bird Sunrise


This morning, as we arrived at the gym, my wife noticed a large bird flying from one tree to another across the street from where we were parked. A quick investigation revealed a fat, fluffy great horned owl chick, sitting calmly, feathers fluffed, head rotating in apparent circles taking in the view. Across the field, in another tall tree, sat mama (or papa) owl and another well-fed strigidae fledgling - watching us intently, back-lit nicely in the golden morning sunlight.
