I walked outside my back porch to grab some firewood and noticed a rather large pile of bird poop right in the middle of the patio. Of course I looked straight up to see where this might be coming from and nearly pissed my pants when I saw this odd creature staring me down from mere feet away. A good friend of mine verified it as an Eastern Screech owl. He stayed around a bit, then flew to perch on the fence and finally in a Live Oak tree. I haven’t seen him since, but hope he is still around the neighborhood.
