Owl Clan

Submitter: Nico Vermaas
Description: Every year a clan of long-eared owls visit the Westerbork Observatory. Usually they take up residence in a tree near the construction hall, but this year they decided to camp in a tree right outside one of our windows. Our cleaning lady found out the hard way that one should always look up first before cleaning windows under a tree. Unfortunately there are no pictures of that event, but I took this snap shot through the window. It has become a daily sport to try to count them, usually there are about 10.
