Masked (and Horned) Bandits --- Day 7/346

Walk: Marin Driving Day
Distance: A few blocks, Yoga

With the Oscars on the way this Sunday, Ciwt posts her first video (fingers crossed).  So what will you view in muted colors with little action?  It's a webcam doc of a mother Great Horned Owl sitting on two eggs that are expected to hatch in early March.  And it is all the rage around the San Francisco Presidio and beyond with 100,000 already watching daily.  Now you can be one of them.

There's tension and drama involved in the story as well because the nest in use was actually stolen from a pair of Red Tailed Hawks who hatched two chicks in it last year - as witnessed by over 200,000.  Here's a link to the story and web cam.  It won't win any Oscars but is pretty dear.
