I was tying down my boat when all of the sudden in the Pine tree across the street shook and all these bird went flying i think they were finches And i hears a screech and then a heard loud flapping then saw a huge bird come flying to the tree above me and dropped a dead rat by my foot. I looked up and it scrreched again and flew away from me.

That's pretty cool. Since you heard the bird flapping, it was probably a red tailed hawk, not an owl.

Hi,

Yeap! Your right Phil!
You can't hear Owls when they flap their wings.

Oh ff Question

FYI: All birds bones are hollow Exclamation

Owls, because they are night predators have wings, designed by nature, to make them fly silently!

Yeah i think it was a hawk, I was pretty big id have to say, between 1 1/2 ft tall to 2 1/2 ft tall. it scared the crud out of me when the rat fell from the tree to the ground with a thump onto the old tv next to my boat. nearly killed me by a heart attack

Owls almost made it into elite ninja status but, their "whooo whoo" lost them that chance to be considered an elite ninja
