Bird brained

The house finches are looking especially red this morning. Big groups of them sit in the trees all over, and for some reason I could see their color from far away today.

Crazy story. A student comes up to me before school this morning and wants to show me their van. right on the sunroof window are the remains of some owl's midnight meal -- some rabbit fur, intestines spread out all over... Since it was on the roof, it must have been a bird's kill; since it happened over night I am assuming great-horned owl.

And to prove nature does, indeed, have a sense of humor... they had gotten a car wash yesterday afternoon.
