> At 1200pm today, when crows were seen harassing a large greyish bird on the ground, the owl was spotted. Location is Airport road, Coventry, just across the road from the entrance to the Airport. It flew to the peak of a red, single story house. The bird was very grey. The picture is on my cell phone, but have no idea how to download it. We will return with a real camera soon.
> I encourage others in this area to go out and try to find it. The airport is not a busy one with large open acres for these birds.
> Good luck!
