Owls are my favorite birds. There was a remarkable "Nature" episode about them that explained how they fly so silently and why they are such effective killers. When I rode the GAP I camped at Husky Haven. Maybe 15' from where I was sitting an owl grabbed a chipmunk and flew off with it. When hunting, an owl drops down vertically on its pretty with amazing force. That aids in disabling the prey.
