"Juvenowl" A young Great Horned Owl has adopted my door

In early October I found a young Great Horned Owl roosting on my back door in Irving, Texas. We've had daily conversations since and each evening at 15 minutes past sunset he goes hunting. As he is young I have named him "Juvenowl." My personal, domestic, short-haired house owl.
