All the time I've had feeders up, I've see several bird raptors of different types around the yard, but tonight was different. I was sitting at my desk watching two flying squirrels at the back feeder out the window, when a Boreal Owl swooped down and just nailed one. Now this feeder is part way under a overhang at the back of the house right next to window, as you can see. The squirrel got away because the owl released him when I jumped up to see and he saw me... I don't know how bad the squirrel is hurt, I looked for him outside, didn't see any visible signs of blood. So, he may have escaped with just a close call. I quickly checked the cam page for recent shots, and this is the capture I got.
