Since this owl was hiding in a forested area, it was a little hard to see. This large, oval shaped bird had brown and white streaks on its wings and an overall brown color all around. The head was very circular and its features (eyes and beak) concentrated in a circle on its head. Its head did not come to a point like other birds. Its face is somewhat heart shaped and mostly white with large round black eyes on the front of its head, not the sides of the head.

Description

This plant has small delicate soft leaves, They grow in an opposite pattern from a light brown branch. I think this was a young plant, there were only about 6 or less leaflets per compound. They are somewhat oval shaped. I suspected it to be red huckleberry but the stem wasn't bright green as red huckleberry is usually. It doesn't quite look like snowberry because it isn't lobed and oval leaved blueberry has an alternate pattern so I think that is ruled out as well.
I believe the Order to be: Ericales
