Great Horned Owl with Striped Skunk

One thing I forgot to mention from the 11th was seeing a large bird in on the limb of a large pecan tree as I was driving down near Ganado/ Lk. Texana. This was broad daylight. I turned around to see a Great-horned Owl with most of the remains of a dead Striped Skunk in it's grasp. It was a big item even for the owl. I have no way of knowing if the owl actually caught the skunk or scavenged it off a road.....Still it was an impressive thing to see..
