Meet Ginger ~ Our Beautiful Red Owl!
Mama, (Ginger), to leave the box. I've seen her perched at the entrance a couple days in a row for short periods of time. She sits and makes the softest little sounds; almost like a soft bleating or cooing. At times she sounds like a kitten. Today, while I watched from a window, she took off to roost in a nearby shrub so I set out with camera in hand to find her. Isn't she beautiful!?! No sign of the owlets yet but I'm hopeful it won't be long.
I'm feeling so blessed to have these owls nest in our yard. This has been such an amazing experience! Thank you DJ for such an awesome Christmas present! It's the gift that just keeps on giving :)
