It’s been twelve days since it rained owls. The ‘Twins’ as we now call them, are getting bigger every day. (They’re about the size of a house cat.) Although they do a significant amount of wing flapping, they’ve only been able to get a couple of inches of air. All in all, it’s been quite a learning experience–for all of us.
The con and pro of having a pair of Great Horned Owls as yard guests:
Con: the mess. Oh sure, there’s the white, splotchy, seen on every statue in the city variety, but what’s worse is the dinner leftovers. Their nightly feedings have resulted in feathers, fur and bones from other luckless creatures.
Pro: less varmints in the neighborhood.
