  2. I saw a big owl tonight up on Lief Erickson drive in Forest Park in Portland. This owl was no little barred or spotted owl. It was ~ 24 inches in length with a ~ 36” wing-span. I think it was a barn owl or maybe a great grey owl. He or she was repeatedly harassing a jogger. Earlier, this same owl had hit another jogger who was bleeding from the talon strike. They are very territorial and aggressive.

    I remember a National Geographic writer once stating that “It was like getting hit by a 2×4 with nails”. I don’t know…maybe we were getting too close to its nest, or something.

    I was walking and got up real close to it. We were checking each other out – really close. A very cool owl, indeed. No Fear! 
