Wowie Owie - Owl Imprint

Want to see something really cool??

I promise, this is NOT a photoshopped image. This is the real deal. It's also rather amazing...

The images:

The story:

I was shown the window today, a few days after it was originally discovered. We suspect that our recent spring snow storm was a bit much on the night the owl took his faceplant into the window. How else would he have left a full-body print like that? Also, if he was wet, it would have helped to leave such a clear impression. It was probably late on a stormy and windy night, poor thing.

We never did find the owl, fortunately. But, we still worry about it's survival. To have taken such a hit. We can just hope for the best and wish him better luck in the future.

Anyway - I happened to be walking outside at just the right moment and snapped a photo as I was leaving work today, those of you who know me KNOW that I almost always have my camera handy. At one point I even carried it on my keychain (in a camera case, but still - attached to my keys!)


This story was picked up by the local newspaper -

Newspaper Link The Daily Herald

oh, and one parting shot - I could not resist a word to the wise...
