What're you lookin' at?

posted by Billie Owens in byron, owls.

Reader Patti Williams sent in this picture of an owl that her son, Andrew Williams, took while he was out turkey hunting. She says her son, who lives in Byron, saw the owl several times, then was able to get close enough to take this photo.

Next to Eagles and Hawks, owls are beautiful.

How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop?

Yes, Tim, I do believe it was this very question the owl was contemplating when he was startled by the Byron resident. You see, he had scooped up a Tootsie Roll on a nearby road following Halloween and scarfed it mindlessly (no doubt he felt a sugar crash coming on a few minutes later). Subsequently, a woodland friend asked him that question -- to which there is no true single answer. He was deep in thought about this and so was quite shaken when the photo was taken. Deep thoughts for his ilk are rare and scientifically proven to last no more than 30 seconds. Nature requires vigilance for survival. I just know stuff like this.
