A Day of Surprises!

(Stock photo)

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!

That's exciting! We have owls around her occasionally. We hear them more than we see them. I was raised on a farm. One time my parents went out and left my brother and me home by ourselves. We were young teens then and everything was fine until we heard this blood curdling screaming outside. My brother went out with a gun and I stayed in the house by the phone. We heard the scream a few times and never saw a thing. My parents were amused by our fear. It was screach owls. Never heard them like that again!

It is so fun to watch nature in your own yard, isn't it?
