The way this gif is loop-edited, it almost looks like the poor owl's head is a springboard for the mobbing jay(?) At least, it looks like a jay or magpie to me.
J. just gave one of our blue jay backyard visitors a peanut, as I type this. And two more of the blue jay family just joined the first one, for some peanut treats.
J. softly whistles to them, which brings them right up to the back deck railing.
A fine fascination (enjoying the wild birds!) on a November day!
