Lilacs and Cherry Blossoms and All That

It's Spring— in spite of the drought.

Nice view!!
This owl's job is to discourage the morning doves from nesting in the trees in the yard of a friend who lives nearby. He has some help—others of the same ilk—but they're not at all effective. The doves carry on, as if to say, you look sort of real. Or maybe the doves are so intent on following their own instincts that an inanimate owl doesn't even register for them. You see these composition owls around the city of Albuquerque. I've noticed them suspended from the under supports of I-25 as I pass under it driving various east and west streets that lead from the Heights, through downtown, to the Valley of this city.
