SNN (ScrollingNetworkNews) ✿ ✿ Our Mel and Sydney returned to their nesting box with plenty of bonding occurring..but after 2.5 months of Sydney in the box from Dec 2013 to mid Feb 2014, the lack of prey gifts from Mel ( perhaps due to the severe and historic drought underway in California)and they have forgone the nesting process this year as many other raptors ✿ Compared to other owls of similar size, the Barn Owl has a much higher metabolic rate, requiring relatively more food. 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. They know the peaks and chasms of being.” ― Gary Kowalski, The Souls of Animals ✿ Each species is a masterpiece, a creation assembled with extreme care and genius." ~ E.O. Wilson

Adventures with Mel & Sydney

Owl landed rooftop at 10:07pm, visited and then flew off at 10:36
 A loud screech heard 11:48 along with deeting when a second owl could be heard out of camera view.

Sharp eyes spotted an Owl in the tree 11:53pm & then a flyby of the second owl, who had been out of camera view (Mel) at 12:02am.

Syd silently appeared in the tree 3:21 and left the same way, 4:02.


Screech & Deets heard followed by a Sydney  flyby up to the Palmz 5:02am, then to the trees 5:21, porch 5:23 and into the box 5:24, she did some floor scratching with looking around the box with her silly expressive faces.

Sydney spends the day inside her box.

Today is 21 out of 28 days with Sydney.
