Finally.  I have been trying to figure out why the owls are here all the time.  In the big trees.  In the off season hawk nest.  I finally realized that in the last big wind storm we had,   the neighbors behind us had a huge old OLD barn blow down.  This was the sort of thing they like to feature on “country” type calendars.  I bet that the owls lost their home that night………just silly that it took so long for me to put that bit of information into the right slot.

Poor owls.  I suppose this means that the hawks are going to have to find a new address come springtime. 

There, that should be IT for owl recounting, at least for the time being.

Hope everyone is snug and warm tonight.  It was about 50 degrees here today…….
