That's a good one. I had a similar event when a foot injury made it so I
had to sit down by the side of the road while the others looked for a Great
Gray Owl. After a few minutes of boredom while sitting, I looked into the
meadow and saw a GGOW on the ground not far from me... not hunting or
eating prey, but acting strange, kinda like me. Anyway, I called everyone
back and I was the "bird hero" for the day.
