We Have Owls!


We've fallen completely and unabashedly in LOVE, I tell ya!   An Eastern Screech Owl couple has moved in and they are the cutest things ever!





I just captured this shot this evening and had to share!  It's late and I'm off to the Master Gardener's demo garden bright and early so must get to bed but I'll post more about the Eastern Screech Owl's habits soon.

Good night!

  3. Are owls struggling to maintain numbers as much as our British owls?
    Hope to hear more in future weeks, including happy events!

  4. Oh Cat, I am so jealous and so happy for you! Do you remember that I said that I am dreaming of seeing a real owl in real life? Well, good to know where I can go now to fulfill that dream ;-) That pic is just to cute. I have pigeons nesting infront of my kitchen window.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
