Tim Knows What Hit Him
Guess what hit him.
An owl. A tawny owl, Strix aluco! In Swedish it's kattuggla, "cat owl". The bird of course went straight to raptor Valhalla, but neither Tim nor his wife and son were hurt. Phew. Female tawnies can weigh up to 800 grams. Still, Tim's got a good story to tell.
