Friday critter blogging:
The owls of San Francisco

They loom over the city on roofs ...

...and perched on trim details.

They are intended to discourage pigeons. No chance. The perfectly adapted urban avian scavenger knows better ...

... than to be disturbed by a plastic bird that comes from a garden store.

I like this one, seen in an artist's garden. Bet it doesn't bother the pigeons either though.

My neighbor has a plastic Owl perched atop his chimney. So far, it hasn't scared a single bird.

Oh, what a foolish web we weave when first we practice to deceive. ;-)
