Screech owl contemplating dinner

Why fly around all night hunting when you can just sit and wait?

We often see a little screech owl sitting on this fence post watching for bugs and other small creatures to crawl by below him. It seems like a productive hunting spot. It’s also beside a trail used by all the other critters as they go about their business at night. In this video it seems as if the screech owl might be wondering if he could take a raccoon or a fox home for dinner. Worth a try? (Probably not.)
