Snowy owl hit by bus blocks from the White HouseA rare snowy owl was in stable, but guarded condition on Thursday after apparently being hit by a bus just blocks from the White House.
It had been seen around town a lot lately looking for food and had attracted a number of fans. A Twitter account was set up to monitor sightings.
The bird, believed to be female, was apparently hit on Wednesday night and found by police in the early morning hours on a downtown street with injuries.
It was taken to the Smithsonian National Zoo's hospital where it was alert and responsive, the zoo said in a statement.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
