This is the first time that the UK has seen Lockheed Martin F35B's
The things that plane can do are amazing and contradictory to the laws of physics. Hopefully the pilot performed a bit with it.

My first thought was Eastern Phoebe...indistinguishable by sight. But in BC it would be a Pewee...

Great Horned Owl

I happened upon a Great Horned Owl with two young who were good enough to land and give me an opportunity. FA 600

Somehow when an owl looks straight at you, as a juvenile is doing in two of the images above, it's easy to believe they know just what you are, just what you're doing, and they don't like it one bit.

Thanks for the comments all, I do have to say while the adult appeared quite "wise and reserved" the youngsters were quite comical as they checked me out. They would do this rolling motion with their head and bodies that was unusual to watch.

Love the Pewee shot (they provide the sound of summer in my neck of the woods) and the owls!

I'm told by my birder friends that owl vision isn't actually that great. They claim the almost comical dancing head movements are the owl's attempt to give different visual perspectives as they fix on us.

That's interesting after you posted your comment I looked it up and found this Why Do Owls Bob Their Heads? | Audubon Apparently they can't move their eyes the way we can they have to move their whole head - like so many things I did not know that......[COLOR="Silver"]
