It made me wonder what has captured his attention.

Take a moment to write a passage, describing what the owl sees. What holds him so still and silent on his lofty perch?

You may even write from the owl’s perspective or with his own unique voice.

Or, consider drafting a paragraph that describes the owl as he sits atop the snow-laden branches.

Have fun with this one!
