Tom Greenleaf e-mailed this story and photos of a great horned owl:

On the 21st an apparently dead owl was noticed in my back yard that abuts the Memorial Forest in Marlborough.  Upon a check it was ALIVE.  It must have crashed into my flag pole as it was in snow and there were no other marks around

I went out to check and the '''Great Horned Owl''' twisted its head and wide eyed looked right at me!

I let it be for several hours checking on it most of the day.  It was still alive and it was such a cold day that I finally moved it with a snow shovel, carefully back to a sunny spot at my home.  There was no change in condition for many hours.  It was able to move its wings and legs but I noticed it doing so only twice.  Finally, I called Audubon and they were interested.  They came out and took it to Tufts for care.  I may never know if it survived but I think it did.  They say they will release it when it's right and it will return to the woods I abut.  I have heard its call before, but never saw it until now!
