Friday 10 February in the Gambia.
In a big tree near peanut fields, a male and a female Verreaux’ eagle owl sit, a meter away from each other. The, bigger, female is on the right.
I remember many years ago, in Amsterdam zoo, a Verreaux’ eagle owl got a fish for food. However, a free grey heron put its bill through the bars of the cage and stole the meal. The owl did not like that.
USA: A report of a Great Horned Owl nest in Golden Gate Park prompted three visits over the past 6 weeks. My first visit on Feb 5, 2012 found two chicks and the mother in a very large pine tree: here.
