    half-brother.

    My mom says she's seen my stepfather get wild birds to light upon his arms. Nothing fancy, just your usual synanthropic birds.

    Still.

    Never been my knack. I do like the grackles, though. They get dissed a lot but they're pretty neat birds. Very complex little critters. Doves, not so much.

      they can be... truly spooky though. I once lived on the remnants of a farm. I'd climb the stairs to the upper barn and pop out of the stairway... right underneath a Great Horned Owls' nest. Nice place to test your inner fear, as they swoop down over your head.

        We do have a lot of raptors, though. And all the turkey vultures one could ever desire :-)

        My mom's up in Washington State, and some months ago they had an owl visit their back yard, just sat on a fence for awhile so she could photograph it. She was pretty jazzed about that. Some kind of barred owl I think?
