What do Great Horned Owls do during the day?

Out at Point Reyes, near the Lifeboat Station, lives a Great Horned Owl. It sits high in a cypress tree, watching hikers and tourists pass by far below. But it isn't exactly idle as it sits there. First, it just looked at us. Great Horned Owl

Then it did a magic disappearing trick with its head: Great Horned Owl

If it had done that first, it would have freaked us out. It looked almost as freaky with this "evil eye" look: Great Horned Owl

But then it went what looks like normal preening mode. Great Horned Owl resulting in all kinds of fluff on its face: Great Horned Owl

Apparently bored with that, it showed us another trick. First it lifted its wing: Great Horned Owl

And then it stretched the wing out all the way, while standing on one leg and crossing its eyes at the same time: Great Horned Owl What a show-off!
