There is a dead give away in that first pic, if you spot it.

birdie ? #52: ?

think I see the dead giveaway, but I can't figure out what makes it a dead giveaway or how it would rule out other possibilities. Care to explain what I'm missing, or is the dead giveaway something in the plumage itself that I'm missing? I can wait until tomorrow if your explanation is more than you want to reveal today.

Maybe it's old news but I just figured out a very handy thing. I keep wishing I could see the last snippet again in context of the current one. By clicking on the colored boxes you can go back through the previous images.

Okay, I'm curious about this dead giveaway. I see the owlet's beak but I don't know anything about the beaks of young owls. Is a young Great Horned Owl's beak different than other young owls? Or is there something else I'm missing?

I'm going to guess that it's the color of the beak that is the big clue that I didn't know about. Combining the dark beak of the young one with the bit of plumage shown in that first shot could be a dead giveaway, if you knew enough to rule out the other dark billed owls.
