Marie Goeritz used her remote wildlife camera to photograph this great horned owl at Upper Mill Brook in Wayland.  Marie writes: "I found a dead rabbit hidden in a little hole under some bushes - I definitely would have missed it if I hadn't followed some tracks nearby. It didn't look like the rabbit had just died there, it really seemed like an intentional cache, and very fresh too. But I was thinking mammalian predators, it never occurred to me that it could have been a bird! Anyway, I set up the camera right there, very close to the trail and right next to a field. The same night, I got these pictures of a Great Horned Owl landing right in front of the camera, obviously noticing it and eying it suspiciously, but then going straight for the cached rabbit and starting to work on it in front of the camera. Unfortunately, these were the only out of over 400 pics that showed anything at all (aside from a human who discovered the not very well hidden camera, and a tractor plowing the adjacent field). Apparently Great Horned Owls are known for stashing away food, but I didn't know that until yesterday."
