A Boreal Interruption
This bird whacked into our new bath window yesterday afternoon. I heard a flump (sound of bird hitting window) and noticed it on the rail of our deck. It rested up for about a half hour, collected its wits and moved on. It is the elusive and shy Boreal Owl.
My daughter, now studying in New Zealand, sent me a note about a special paint that only birds can see - to the human light spectrum it is invisible, birds apparently see a brick wall. Always something new to think about.
