Forest Spirit
I was waiting for dad at the top of a ridge above Fox Creek when I heard a quiet, short screech in trees. It was persistent so I went looking for the source. I walked through the forest from tree to tree for cover. Sometimes I would have to wait for the screeching to start again, but finally I found the source. A great grey owl about 60 feet up a snag. For the next bit I spent with holding my camera at a very awkward angle over my head. It did a lot of head bobs, screech, and stared at me but it never left. In fact, it was still there after dad and I took off on the four wheelers back to the truck.
