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.

Adventures with Mel and Syd

 Never to feel left out of a new event going on, when Mel and Syd heard that the "Ravens" were at the Superbowl in New Orleans, they just had to be there..
Well they soon found out that it wasn't quite the ravens they were thinking of.

 Screeches heard at 8:27 pm but no sightings until this owl showed up at 9:40pm and sat at the end of the playground for 20 minutes where at 10:00pm the owl flew off.
Incoming deets heard at 3:30am, no sightings and the owlbox remains empty today.

Remember that we have a "Blog 2" that holds pictures and videos of past months and is a catalog of our owls and events.. You can find the tab link under our banner picture on this blog or you can click on the link
