We have screech owls in our woods but only hear them.  Have never seen them.

Thank you Dominic you are right. Bread is empty calories. Thanks for the beautiful bird picture Dominic and Lillie. Wow - that owl really blends in.

Why don't I ever find photo ops like this one?  From National Geographic Photo of the Week.

Water fowl enjoy a mixed birdseed.  While not a complete diet, it is far better than junk food.  Bread would not hurt if one person was feeding it, but multiply that by everyone who comes into a park for example.  Just goes to show you that bread is not a good food for us either.  Basically empty calories.
