I’ve been spending a lot of time at home lately with my son, who’s now sick with his third cold (flu?) in four weeks. Today we had to get out for some fresh air. At around lunchtime, we heard our local Great Horned Owl hoo-hooing. I know it isn’t a typical night-time owl walk, but we headed out in search of the owl anyways. We didn’t find it, but this American Kestrel flew right over our heads and landed on a branch near us. Very cool!
