    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.
