Bird sightings

Well, my Mom has bested me again in the bird category. We have this little "bird war" going on...tonight, while watching some deer in her backyard, Mom noticed a small bird that had landed on her windowsill, right by her face. It was a SAW-WHET OWL.
<<<<------This is what they look like.

My only neat bird sighting lately: Mom and I were driving over the river in Loveland, and I saw a Belted Kingfisher sitting on a power line right next to the bridge. I love kingfishers...instead of swallowing fish while they are flailing about, the kingfisher beats the fish senseless on a rock first and then swallows it.
