Thanks Murray Lord for pointing out a picture on the internet of a 
young owl in the posture I described recently.
The Rufous Owl was in the same posture as the owl pictured, only it 
was on a slenderer branch, at the fork, and so looked rather more 
precarious. One wonders about the reason and value of the posture - 
legs not that strong yet, perhaps.

Happy birding
