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.

Bon Voyage Kanga

Kanga will be AFK/AFK ( Away From Kastle & Away From Kountry ) enjoying a well deserved vacation.

Boom and Panorama Cam viewing will be off-line till his return.

The plan is to have Inside & Palm cams up barring any problems.
While he is away we will continue to have the view from the outside of the owl box to see comings and goings at the porch on the infra-red PALM cam. This cam will be up most of the time, day and night. If the internet gremlins are kind…Day viewing inside the owl box should be in full glorious sharp color as always, so if Mel and/or Sydney are present for a day-stay, we'll be able to see our beloved owlies preen, doze, and maybe even some kissy face! (◠‿◠)

There's also a second cam (PIP cam) inside the owl box - ready as a spare, in case of laptop or internet problems on the main cam.”

To Kanga-
May your journeys fill your heart ,mind, and eyes with the deepest of pleasure . Our prayers go with you for a safe journey. 
Have a WONDERFUL time !
