I see this Great Horned owl sitting up in a tree in my backyard in Central California frequently during the daytime. In the early morning hours I get up and see it up on a pole that over looks the agricultural fields over our back fence, and at dusk, I have seen him there too. I have noticed less of the field mice making it into my backyard this year, and am thinking I have this guy to thank for that.
The top picture is at Shaver Lake, CA. I believe it is a Steller Jay. And the next two pictures are in my backyard and front yard in Fresno, CA. I believe it is a Red tailed Hawk, as they are fairly common in our area.
My favorite bird on The Wall was The Superb Lyrebird. I was first attracted to its beautiful long tail, but when I read of its musical prowess, it became my favorite. My daughter runs a music school at my home, and I am definitely a lover of music!
