Head was too squashed to get any decent image of the bill color. This is the only screech-owl species which occurs in this area.
The date is approximate, but I was witness to seeing a black bear cub step in front of a large flatbed truck. The incident happened on a road with a speed limit of 35mph. I was surprised the truck did not have time to slow down. The bear was badly wounded and crawled off the road. I called police and the game dept came out quickly and put the bear down. Very sad. I have to wonder if the truck driver was not paying attention to road.
