Don't Let The Cat Out!

From sundown to sunup this barred owl has become our buddy, I think.  He hoots all night, and talks to me at three in the morning when I take Skip out.  I don't know if he would dive on a dog or not, so right now the dogs are going on a leash every time they need to go out.  And then, there are skunks.  Little Skipper met up with Mr. Skunk at 3:30 AM a couple weeks ago, and we sure don't want that to happen again.  We haven't seen the skunk again, but we are ready for him.  Today a couple dozen geese flew in, and we are hoping they move on rather than hanging around to poop all over the yard.

I don't think of a barred owl as being capable of taking a dog or cat. Best not to take a chance, however! Once in a while we get great snowy owls around here, and they are big enough.

We had a busted window in the garage at our old house, and a Screech Owl decided to call it home. I kept going out to get in my car in the morning, and there would be large splatters of bird yuck on my car; I hadn't remembered driving under a flock of pterodactyls. After looking around the garage, we found him perched up in a corner.
