Pound for pound, Barn Owls consume more rodents – often regarded as pests by humans – than possibly any other creature. ✿ We remind viewers that sometimes owlets may not survive - the parents will dispose of things in "The Owl Way" -viewer discretion is advised, this is nature and the "Owl way". ✿ ~ ✿ “Animals, like us, are living souls. They are not things. They are not objects. Neither are they human. Yet they mourn. They love. They dance. They suffer.

Owlymoon Continues

Sydney searches for Mel
Sydney cont to wait for her Mel as the night wore on. After the early evening when her and Mel arrived, after the lovin ( isn’t that a song ? ) they both left with Syd returning at 1:25 am and sitting in the box for a short time then promptly leaving to the comfort of the porch for a few hrs. Still treat less with Mel not bring a treat home for the pantry..
No Sydney in the box today, off to enjoy the day with Mel in the palmz... ©
