Hi, Bakorino, she's looking down, suspicious of a dog running around in the yard. Andreas, I thought so, too, but they are awake with their babies, I think. Both parents guard the nest. Maybe they take turns sleeping. Hahahaaa Nadia! That's so funny, and you are absolutely right! Thank you all for your visits!!!

tom, votoja and valley, thank you for your visits and comments about my backyard owl. :D It is surprisingly large - I had never seen one this close - about 20" high from head to end of tail. When it flapped off of the branch to go to another tree, it was very impressive! :O
