I've got a frog in my throat. This burrowing owl was left with a huge pair of frog's legs dangling from its mouth when it tried to eat breakfast in one go. The bird struggled to gulp down its prey as it stood in a grassy field.
I have a sign on my front steps to warn people of the attack cat I have on duty. It is partly a joke, but my kitty has a nasty habit of trying to bite. However, I have a feeling that "Beware of Attack Owl" is very serious.
The northern hawk-owl (Surnia ulula) is a non-migratory owl that usually stays within its breeding range, though it sometimes irrupts southward. It is one of the few owls that is neither nocturnal nor crepuscular, being active only during the day.
