No owl sightings
PM, very breezy, even windy
No owls seen, though there was a jay and then a robin scolding a bit over east of the shop. Perhaps owls roosting in the Football tree.

AM, T=84, humid
6:43AM, one owl flew to the pecan branch near the deck. It made a short flight over the deck to pluck a snack off of a clump of hackberry leaves. I assume it roosted in the pecan somewhere. Couldn’t tell if it was adult or juv, and I didn’t see a mate.

Monday morning, warm and humid
6:48-7AM, F (?) owl on the fence, hunting posture. It flew to the ground under the bird feeder and returned to the Birdfeeder branch dangling a skink or lizard; it was dark, not gecko-light, and went down in one gulp. At 7A it exited to the SE, perhaps through the Gap.
