Our owl friends
They're baaaack! 8-)) A 4th one joined them soon after this photo. It's about 8:30 pm, and dusky/dark. They were not at all concerned by us peeking at them, nor the camera flash! We finally went quietly out on the deck and sat down - our presence didn't bother them at all! Astonishing how unafraid they are. And what on earth do they want looking into the house??? Look at their intense staring - I need to check out a Birdwatching site to find answers! Are they seeing their reflection? or light? or moths on the deck glass door? They did a lot of looking UP. Soon these 3, then 4, swooped away, and we saw the 5th one join them from another direction - we're happy to know they are still a whole family. Their delightful head bobbing and circling must serve some practical purpose.
This is Sunday evening. Saturday night one was sitting on the fence looking right back at us into the kitchen window, when we opened the window for night air. We are blessed.
