Hi Tweeters;
This evening an irate Robin called my attention to a Northern Pygmy-Owl
perched in the maple tree in our front yard. There was still enough
light so that I was able to get a photo of it. When I saw the photo on
iphoto I was amazed because the owl had a Bullock's Oriole in its
talons. According to Sibley a N. Pygmy-Owl weighs 2.5 oz.
and an oriole 1.3 oz. The length of a NOPO is 6.25" compared to an
oriole's 9". Anyone interested in seeing this let me know.
