After spending a fair amount of time searching for the family that resides in Forest Park, I am surprised at how many times i have seen a Great Horned Owl in other places.
We saw one in a friend's Dogtown backyard a few weeks back. Then last night, one swooped in front of me and landed on the light pole next to our house. Then again today in a pine at Tower Grove Park. It is funny what you find when you aren't even looking!
