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

 The fun began early last night. Adi came out 8:46pm & Hunter 8:52pm. Adi has become an old pro flying, jumping, pouncing & balancing from porch to trees to rooftop to playground & to feedbox.
Adi goes into the feeding box but doesn't retrieve a treat.

Hunter watched taking it all in learning the ropes so to speak. She eventually got her nerve up to try it herself.
She practiced jumping down to the playground, walking to the far left then flying back to the roof several times. Practice makes perfect they say.

The UFO made a few appearances with flybys, a porch landing, feedbox landing(inside box in photo), playground landing & boom cam landing all non-threatening to the Kidz.

Hunter & Adi came in for the day 5:13am & 5:16am respectively.
