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 and Sydney

Owl arrived landing on the roof 10:53pm, and did a “rooftop shuffle”. The owl flew off 10:57pm after looking up into the air appearing to be looking at something either in the trees or air.
Cameras were up & down all morning but the viewers managed to see an owl flyby 4:56am straight to the tree spot. '
Syd was that you? 
It disappeared 5:13am
Another day without Sydney and a empty box.
Please keep positive thoughts for our Sydney that she is on the mend with her injury and will be back in her daytime roost of the box soon. ‎~ ♥ ~
