Is this an owl?

by Rebecca Headrick
(Merced, CA)


We think it's an owl, but can't tell. Big thick yellow legs, big giant eyes, turned his head all the way around. Sighted in the Central Valley California city of Merced on 2/10/12 at about 3pm Pacific time. any help would be much appreciated.


Mostly white with dark eyes, black wing tips and a gray back.
