This morning the kids were on a mission to get ready and get outside to play in the frost that collected along the hillside. They played around out there laughing, playing tag, and just enjoying walking through the frost in the grass for about 5 minutes before they came running back to the house to point out the bird they saw on our roof!
Considering the evidence, that this bird can look both forwards and backwards without moving it’s body, I’m pretty sure this is an owl. A very beautiful owl. Our neighbors built an owl house in their tree and we’ve heard this guy around for weeks now. It’s nice to finally get to meet him. her. whatever.
