Worth a Thousand Words: Long-eared Owl

Last night when we were getting out of the car to huddle with the other masses invading the neighborhood near the country club ... superb fireworks by the way ... we heard a screech owl protesting from the tree we parked under. It did not approve of all these people, all this movement and noise, all these lights. Did we not know we were scaring away the best large insects? What about consideration for those living there?

Luckily, a short hour later we were departing, leaving that little owl with the melodic call to its pursuit of dinner.

This photo obviously is not a screech owl. But it resonated this morning after our experience last night.
