An unusual Owl nest to be sure... The story I heard was that her nesting tree blew over in a windstorm , so some kind soul installed this wicker basket way, way way up a nearby tree. The hope was that she would find it and use it as a nesting platform.
As the story goes... Build it and they will come!
While I was balancing myself on a sidehill and trying to shoot a few photos in very low light conditions, a tiny Anna's female Hummingbird came by to check out her nest. If you look closely you will see her fly past (out of focus towards the top of the images from left to right)
Made my day...
Thanks for looking............TerryV
