OWL AT THE BEAVER POND - I spotted an immature Great Horned Owl at the beaver pond a while back - so I was happy to see this one at the beaver pond today - maybe the same owl with it's adult feathers?  On average 90 percent of a Great Horned Owls diet is mammals, but the diet of some individuals can be up to 90 percent birds, mainly waterfowl or medium size birds roosting in the open. This makes me think this owl is working the beaver pond in addition to the forest around it.
