Holy cats, there was an owl in my backyard! I went to open my patio door and there was a huge brown owl perched on the deer feeder. We have about 3 acres of woods behind our house, so we’ve seen our share of deer and wild turkeys, but seeing that owl was really neat. Luckily Emily got to see it, but it flew away before I could get my camera. I’ve heard the occasional hoot in the woods at night, but never thought I’d see one so close to the house. Very cool.
