I saw an owl the last four times I've been to Bell's Point; this is the first time I could get a photo (from a distance).

Fitness hike with friends.  Saw a Great Horned Owl near Bell's Point and heard (twice) sounds of a cat but we couldn't see it.  Don't know if it was a feral cat or a bobcat kitten.
