Fortunately, my son did not send me a picture of the skunk he found. Or I should say, half of a skunk. He did, however, send a picture of a feather left at the 'scene of the crime'.
I have found my share of dead birds and mammals in my yard. Nothing like finding a half-skinned groundhog next to the deck. Yuck. But at least it doesn't smell as bad.
I have not seen a lot of owls around here, though I have seen a few and they are always a treat. More likely to be seen are hawks and if you look up there is a good chance they will be circling in the sky. I always figure there will be at least one less rodent when they are through. And that is a good thing in my opinion.
