Owl in Wind

With a chill northwest wind blowing at around 25 mph, the Bay waters got agitated enough to stir up the muddy bottom and turn the whole thing brown. Not very far inland, the Burrowing Owl in the nature area on the north side kept its head low in the grass and let the blow pass mostly over it. The bird nevertheless remained alert; one eye caught the occasional glimpse between rapidly waving blades of grass. Humans who hoped to view the owl without binoculars or zoom lenses were out of luck.
