Rocklin DGC Northern CA My Buddie and I were coming down the fairway for our second shot and we saw this owl sitting in this tree only 10' off the ground. We approached slowly to get a closer look and got about 20' away when he finally took off. The owl was huge, He was at least 18 inches tall perched on the log and had a huge wing span. So the owl is struggling to get airborne and is about 75' away and this eagle came out of nowhere and tagged it. They did somersaults in the air all the way to the ground. The eagle pulled out of it while the owl crashed to the ground screeching and going around in circles. It happened so fast me and my bud just stood there and said, Did that just happen, It was like something out of National Geographic. We called every bird rescue we could find. Dont know if someone came out and helped it. It wasnt there the next day.
