I  love owls.  I've been watching several owl nest cams, barred owls in Florida, great horned owls in Oklahoma, and today there was a juvenile giant eagle owl at Pete's Pond in Botswana.  However, when one got one of my chickens this morning I was less than pleased.  We do share the island with these wonderful birds but I'm not as keen on sharing my chickens.  I figured she (or he) has babies to feed.  And the babies I've been watching on the cams are awfully cute.  The picture above is a barred owl and below is a great horned owl.

  1. I have a friend who is a great owl-lover Margaret. She took some wonderful photographs of a long-eared owl on the edge of a nature reserve - she was on the road in her car at the time. The next morning the warden found the owl dead on the road, it had been run over.
    So sad.
    Wonder how I would feel if our local buzzard got one of my chickens!
