Over the past week or two, I caught the Black Capped Chickadee and the Cedar Waxwing after they had indulged themselves in a bird bath in the little creek.
Love to see how different & fluffy they can appear when you add a little water.
In the case of the Great Horned Owl - this photo was taken in May 2016, after a skirmish this mother owl had had with a Canada Goose, who had flown to close to the owl's nest. She had taken the fight to the pond where the goose had landed and obviously had gotten a little too close to the water's edge. No harm done. She could still fly extremely well but spent the next hour or so "air drying". Talk about "Grumpy Owl" face :(
