Talk about coincidence.

Today at work (12.15PM), one of the engineers came running up to my office,
asking me to come and look at an owl which had flown in to his office
window.  By the time I got to the window, the owl was flying away so didn't
get a good look.  However there was a very dusty impression left on the
glass.  It was really quite remarkable - the shape of the face was perfect,
outline of the wings, and even the shape of the talons.  Judging by the
size, and the description of a round white face from the engineer, I hazard
a guess at Barn Owl - possibly.  Suspiciously though, there was a large
group (7+) of Little Ravens in the vacinity all carrying on.
