Photo detail

A northern spotted owl, named Obsidian by U.S. Forest Service employees, flies after an elusive mouse that had been sitting on the end of a stick in the Deschutes National Forest near Camp Sherman, Ore., in this May 8, 2003 file photo. The Bush administration's plan for assuring the survival of the northern spotted owl while allowing increased logging in old growth forests has received another bad review.
