I wish I had a good camera with a telephoto lens. I was doing the dishes and looking out at the frozen pond and saw this 'different' shape on the fence post. We always have our binoculars handy and I figured it was a hawk, but it turns out to be an owl. It's probably frozen to the post.
Update 4:42 pm: The owl is still there.
Update 5:37 pm: OK, I am looking around my property for Eric Idol and John Cleese. I think this poor bird may be "nailed to his perch".
Update: 5:58 pm: Peter is home from work and we both concur that this is a Great Horned Owl.
Update 6:15 pm: He's gone. Peter went out to snow blow...
