Clifford Kellogg of North Bend’s Riverbend neighborhood snapped a photo of this barred owl, which hit his glass door in an apparent attempt to have his wife’s merlin falcon, Pippy, for dinner.

Pippy was “perched on the dining room table, and the owl must have thought he might make a good meal,” says Kellogg.

Neither bird was injured.
