A Day of Surprises!
Yesterday there two of them. I counted later and there were 3 of them, surprising DH. By the end of day, there were 4 little owls. When it was dusk, they all flew off, to a nearby neighbor's tree, and two of them seemed to be somewhat clumsy -- maybe youngsters. We could hear their gentle warbling sounds, very faint. They lined up on a branch like a chorus line, checking us out, and then, almost in unison, did the head bobbing/circling of their heads, looking like little cartoons! So cute and so funny!
Today was full of MORE surprises - firstly, the owls were back - that was a surprise in itself. One was in my evergreen tree, just off the deck just like yesterday, and the others were in a neighboring evergreen tree - but, now there are FIVE of them!
I wonder if the total will change tomorrow??? Can't wait to find out!
