Might I Have Owl on the Brain? What Do You See?
Eastern screech owls are all I can think of. We experience a rush of exhilaration every time we see them. A cute, little face appears at the box opening each evening as the sun slips below the horizon. With the porch light on we can see the opening of the box clearly but I hate to disturb them with the light. Last night we watched the male swoop in from the greenbelt through the tree canopy with a nice sized morsel for his mate!
We don't however, get any photographs. A couple of friends with owl boxes have captured photos of their resident owls during the day. Admittedly, I haven't been home much during the past week so maybe they are coming to the opening in the daylight hours and I just haven't seen them. I hope so.
How long, I wonder, will I be seeing owls in everything I come across...like this old water pump handle fitting...
What do you see in the picture above? Do you see the owl?
