On Friday afternoon, Nov 2, about 1:30 I discovered a Great Horned Owl trying to rest in the nature pond area of our condominium complex at about 4500 South and Highland. A Sharp-Shinned Hawk was harassing the owl which attracted my attention to the owl. I watched it for the next 45 minutes or so and the hawk eventually moved on. I have seen a Western Screech Owl in the nature pond area, but I had not seen a Great Horned Owl here in this area in the middle of the city. A couple of photos through the fall leaves are attached.
