Owl keeps an eye out, in New York
This owl in New York rouses from sleep to take a look around. His gray feathers help him blend almost seamlessly into his surroundings, making him tough to spot unless you have a keen eye yourself!

Bottom line: An owl opens one eye to survey his surroundings before nodding back to sleep.
