Great Horned Owls watching Barn Swallows
This evening while I was watching the huge flock of Barn Swallows swirling around above the cornfields before plunging down to their nighttime roost in the corn, I heard a Great Horned Owl hooting behind me. I turned around and discovered these two owls that also appeared to be watching the show. They flew away in the opposite direction, but I wonder if they had just stopped in to see where their midnight snack would be waiting for them.
