Owl intruder

We've been having a visitor every night about 8:30.

A horned owl sits in the Catalpa snag in the Sivley's back yard. Notice the particularly bold mockingbird (left) and robbin (right).

The first night he came, the little birds made quite a fuss; actually scaring the owl away. The second night, the owl didn't seem as fazed, though the birds were trying their best to seem intimidating. Last night, only the mockingbird ventured to follow the owl. The owl looked down at the mockingbird... and the mockingbird decided to retreat.
