Last night began with Syd calling for Mel 6:25pm. She prepares for Mel who she hears outside coming to the box. He arrived one minute later. The infamous third owl, made an appearance 7:15.
Mel defended his Kastle
(see video below).
Mel brings back a nice sized gift treat for Sydney who snacked and down sized it and later stored it back into her pantry.
Wow look at that tail!
What is it?
Rat of Possum?
That guilty look on his face said it all “caught beak handed” but he continue working on the treat till a flyby 4:08. He started deeting. Syd returned 4:10. Mel handed her the treat.
Hint - Look at the feet on this treat and by looking at them, you can see the toes are those of a possum. Opossums have opposable thumbs on their hind feet which help them to grip branches and climb. They are the only non-primates with opposable thumbs.
She placed it in the pantry but Mel still being hungry, tried to steal it 4:17. So she decided to eat it 4:22 but again he tried to steal it 4:26am
Something got their attention at 5:07am (maybe 3rd owl again?).
Mel assumed a defensive posture, stepped outside then back in 5:08.
No idea what it was.
Everything being as it should be, Mel & Syd bonded, followed up by kissy face & preening.
Both are in for the day.
