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.

Happy Endings

This photo is from one of our very own chatters from San Diego who has her very own owlbox in her yard. Her owls are very active playing their chasing games ( I see eggs in her future )
She contacted the blog to ask for some guidence on how to handle a unhappy neighbor who had be complaining about the noise the owls have been making. Problem solved.. !
After reminding the neighbor about the laws regarding birds of prey and baking him a pie, she has not heard back from him.. Way to go !

Another chatter sent this fun puzzle game on the very cute Asian Wood Owl. Have fun !
