Watch out for the Owls

No, I don't mean the Temple Owls. I mean the local barred owls. Mom sent me an email from the Carolina Birders list on owl attacks on campus and now the News and Observer is reporting on owl attacks on Sewell School Road (one of the places I run). Certainly not a surprise to me as I was attacked in almost exactly the same manner a few years ago in the woods just a few hundred yards from Sewell School. In my case it was almost certainly a parent protecting a nest, but this time of year it seems a little odd - too late for nestlings and too early for mating season. Regardless, I'd suggest running with a cap on.
