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

Both kids waited up by the door for dinner last night and at one point were very vocal and excited, could it have been that a parent was at the other end of the playground out of camera view?

Unknown which parent it was delivering the first treat, Adi got a slippery slider mouseie that was gone in a flash at 10:39pm. Fling and fly delivery.

 Another fling and fly at 11:24pm to Hunter.

2:03am again a fling and fly beak hand off through the door Unknown critter to Hunter.

Besides the 3 Treats delivered, Adelaide & Hunter had a fabulous night. We were entertained as they ran around flappercising & giggled as they pounce practiced. (FYI the cameras were down at least twice during morning hours (3:02 – 3:22 & 5:40 – 6:32) due to Internet outages and more food could have been delivered during this time)
