GHO vs RTH
Seems there's a young male Great Horned Owl in Central Park. I was able to get over to where it was this afternoon. The bird was high up in a shaded and branchy oak tree. It was hard to get a clear shot, but I managed to find the least blocked shot. Quite a crowd gathered when the Owl became very alert and switched branches. Seems his Paleness was not thrilled with this squatter, Occupying his territory. PM put on his threat display and let out his beautiful keeyar. Then he flew up to where the Owl was. Landing on a nearby branch. Thus commenced the staring game. Eventually after much bluffing, Pale Male flew off and then circled overhead. Eventually he head off West, and the Owl settled in. Wish I could've made flyout.
