The last few days at our house has been very exciting. We’ve decided that one of us must be a wizard [me, of course] and that Hogwart’s is looking to recruit that magical person [me] to attend the school. Why? Well, they’ve sent their owls to deliver the invitation! However, the owls must have dropped the letter along the way, but we’re expecting new owls anytime. In the meantime, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed the little family of
screech delivery owls that graced our trees for a couple of days. And thanks to our daughter’s knowledge of owls and our trusty encyclopedias, we’ve learned all about these creatures.
One of the things we learned was that these owls are monogamous, so we assumed our little family of fowl consisted of a mama…
and a very sleepy baby…
We watched for two days as these birds slept in our trees then awoke at night to feed.
They kept their eyes on us as well.
They have now disappeared from our trees, [probably to go find the Hogwart’s invitations they dropped], but we enjoyed their short visit and learned a lot while they were here.
