    Jude, I am on facebook, but haven't checked in there for months. Smokey is in some of my pictures along with Gracie.
    We rescued Smokey from an abusive home, it has taken 3 years to calm him some, he was a biter & will any one but us.

    Inside, one elderly, retired dog. Outside, Koi, which attract raccoons & blue herons, woodpeckers, finch, the occasional eagle, you name it and my favorites, crows. The crows leave "gifts" in exchange for pieces of dried bread. The other day I found a turquoise empty ranch dressing packet outside my door.

Hopefully it's staying away from the squirrels so far.
    It probably is a big ball of bones. Owls can't digest fur, feathers or bones. They barf them back up after they have digested the meat off what they eat.

    1 Peking white duck
    1 Gander/Goose
    1 spoiled fat male Tom cat.

    That's it for now. Come spring will go to Naylors Feed store and buy a couple more ducks and maybe another goose/gander. I really don't need a dog because Goosentha is really noisy and always on patrol.

    a chipmunk named Little Arthur. I give him leftover bits and he runs over my shoes. Here he is cleaning out every single seed from the innards of a squash

    I do feral feeding and have done trapping/spaying, etc. and it's so important to keep these cats from continuing the cycle. The poor babies have a tough life in the wilds. I co-feed with another gal and we provided food to 5 cats both breakfast and dinner. Very rewarding!

    When we lived in Bailey, CO (near you) we had a baby bear on our deck dringing from the hummingbird feeder.

    I checked the Field Guide of North America...looks closest to a "Barred Owl".
