I would never have expected to see a bird I consider nocturnal despite the fact I was out early (we're expecting another triple digit day) it was still 10 after 6 in the morning and very bright. While we aren't in the middle the city it's still an urban area. He was just sitting on the covering of someones patio. Thought he was fake at first but then he rotated his head and blinked.
Big beast. About a foot tall. From a little research online I think it must have been a Great Horned Owl.
