The owl reported by Bob Behrstock may be the same owl we had in our yard last Wednesday, Dec. 20 about a mile away. It appears to be a Mountain Pygmy Owl. This owl killed a Canyon Towhee and dragged it in short flying hops to a manzanita 15 ft away where it dined on it for the next 6 hours. eBird report at http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S41219519 including photo taken by my wife Liza.
