These two co-incidental lookalike photographs were supplied by press services to news outlets and likely showed up in many printed newspapers and on their websites this week. I spotted them on the Telegraph Picture Galleries. The two juxtaposed similar poses, caught my eye, as I'm sure they did other online birders. In the top photo, photographer John Tajima captured the Great Grey Owl snatching up a mouse, near the Ottawa River Park, in Canada's capital city. In the bottom photo, by Owen Humphreys, a plump turkey makes a run for it at Fenham-La-Moor farm, in Northumberland, England. I'm betting it did not become airborne.
