OWL: We have a great horned owl in a yard near ours! Not there every day, but quite often. Stays in the tree all day, hardly moving. Crows make a ruckus about it. He leaves just about dusk, and is difficult to photograph.
Update April 2014: this owl has not been in our tree since Feb, but we have seen it in the neighborhood, twice. Maybe its nesting nearby???
