Owl Be Back ~ haibun

Owl Be Back

While kayaking last May, I saw a bird and chicks in a nest high above the river, thinking it was a great horned owl I had seen there previously. It wasn’t. It was a red-tailed hawk. Well, I paddled that same same stretch of the river yesterday, and the great horned owl is back.

And there is a chick in the nest with it.

After a short while, the adult flew off, presumably to draw my attention away from the nest. It didn’t work.
