Great Horned Owl Chick Preening 0479
This is the day the chicks fledged the nest. I was very surprised to see it and Mom near where I stand. I could hear it giving a screech every now and again. After jumping and practicing flapping and branching, one obviously needs to preen!

- Owl reminds us to stay true to your ideas. Since they are very large birds of prey, they are feared by other birds. When those smaller birds feel threatened, they will come together to mob the owl. Very rarely harming it, but chases it away if they are persistent. So this reminds one that if you are challenged for your ideas, don't let them ruffle your feathers!
