Close encounter of the owl kind

On my way to a Tai Chi lesson in the park, I suddenly stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this:

Of course, I had to investigate it in all kinds of ways:

It obviously had been made very recently because the wood still smelled sooooo good, kind of sweet and, well, you know, woody.

And yes, it IS a pretty big owl too (although I am not exactly very tall).

All in all, this close encounter of the owl kind made me very happy :-))).
