We have some owls around here, but I guess the five dogs make them want to stay away. grin

They were talking on the telly this morning about Australia banning toy guns from children!

How sick is that?

Instead of running around in the fresh air playing cowboys, they now can sit indoors playing video games of mass destruction. grin

We played plenty of that as a kid. We also knew if we picked up a real one unwarranted or careless that we'd pick ourselves up from the floor against the far wall.

I've never seen something like that happen. Pretty dang funny!


Lol. I bet it freaked him out with the talons on those things grin

We have some great-horned owls nesting in the trees outside the house that we get to listen to at night. I don't know what kind of owl this guy is, but I snapped a quick picture while he was out and about in the daytime last winter.

Those are wild-lookers. Looks like they do a number on the rodents though. Adult upper pic and young lower pic?

Yes, that's correct.

My wife has taken to leaving pieces of meat out now for the Owl, not sure how successful she is as I spotted a Magpie nicking it the other day. grin

We hear owls at night, mainly great horned and occasionally a screech owl. There are plenty of mice and rats in the fields to keep them fat and sassy. grin

That's a good thing about them, they keep the vermin down.
