New Neighbor

An owl seems to have taken up residence
in the hollow tree across the creek!

It's been in there several days in a row.

Yesterday I saw blue jays squawking and flying
and darting near the tree the way they do,
and you know how they are notorious for stealing eggs,

so I'm hoping it's a SHE, sitting on her nest!

Wouldn't baby owl neighbors be awesome?

p.s.  I can't tell you how rare it is for us to see an owl here.
We hear them all the time, hooting in the trees,
but we don't see them often at all,
so this ranks as High Excitement in our household.  LOL


  1. Congratulations. Great photo. Fingers crossed for babies raised to adulthood.

  2. I hear them all the time, too, but have never seen them around up here in New England.
