Tonight while cooking dinner I heard a loud thud on one of the many large windows here at the Bailey house. My first thought was, "its kinda late for birds." To my surprise upon investigating, I found a small owl laying on the deck. I told Bob and he came up and picked it up right away. Luckily the little guy, which Bob identified as the Northern Pygmy Owl, was pretty dazed but still breathing. We got to watch him come to his senses and after 10 minutes take off into the night.
