The Owl

I have to take a brief break from my Thankful journey to talk about my walk to work this morning. Normally it's 100% without event, and though I'm tired, the half mile journey normally wakes me up a little and preps me for my day.

This morning I was walking down the steep hill from our neighborhood and I felt a large bird swoop over top of me. I looked up to see a HUGE wing span, thinking it was a hawk I didn't really take a closer look, until it swooped over me again and grabbed my stocking hat right off my head! I think that he thought the ball was a rodent or something.

He dropped my hat on just the other side of the road and landed in the tree, I approached the tree to get my hat and looked up to see a brown Owl sitting on a tree branch. He was so pretty with a few white feathers around his face. I think it was the first time I've ever seen an Owl that close and face to face! They really are beautiful birds! I grabbed my hat, and scolded him for taking it.

He swooped over top of me again and flew off to another tree.

I tried desperately to get a photo of him, but it was SO dark outside! I did manage to get a image, but It's not one I'm even going to share here, because if you didn't know he was there, you wouldn't be able to make him out in the photo.

Such a funny way to start my day!
