Subject: [obol] Western Screech-Owl preening
Tonight the Western Screech-Owl nesting in my yard showed itself at
6:10PM. While it was perched at the entrance to the cavity it preened for
several minutes prior to flying out at 6:16PM.

For those interested, here's a 2:34 video of the preening. At the end it
sits still and if you look closely and watch its chest you can actually see
its chest expanding and contracting with each breath.
