SFO TWR (i assume): Is he bigger than your airplane?
ACA754: No, and I don't think he is transponder equipped.

The pilot tried to get excited over this, the controller sounded like he really couldn't care less.  smiley

The controllers know the local wildlife (they have had enough eye-witness reports, know the cadaver-count statistics, etc.) Pilots are used to the wildlife around their hometown, the pests at a foreign airport could be their first sighting of an exotic animal.

There's plenty of wildlife at Pearson; rabbits, foxes living between 6L/R, etc.

I bet if that Air Canada pilot put a big Owl right in front of the tower windows when the controller wasn't looking he might be a bit more interested.  grin
