This is who came to watch me hot tub tonight :) I was sitting in the tub thinking "is that an owl?" I had been in for a bit and kept hearing him call, so I switched positions (and kept the bubblers off) and watched for him. Had it not been for a couple of mocking birds giving him heck, I would have never found him!
I hollered in the house for Liz to bring them camera and see how close she could get to him... he was actually in a neighbors tree one house over, but had a very nice view towards us and apparently towoards the street and houses to the west of us. He stayed there hooting on occassion to a buddy in the trees to the north. When he finally took off, I would guess his wingspan was close to 6' - BIG guy!
