I sat out there for two hours and watched this frog mouthed owl up there on that tree branch. They usually always sit in pairs, but this time just the one.
The only time it moved was once an hour into things - a shake of the head to rid the raindrops i imagine.

Did I ever tell you that I once visited Walden Pond ?
A big Thoreau fan, it was quite a moment in my life.
Here you can see and read about other birds of the Kimberley, seen where I live.
