Must-See Owl TV

Sorry. My owl fixation is becoming an issue for me as well as my family. But you MUST watch this clip. It is a pair of barn owls in England who successfully raised a clutch of 8. Yes, EIGHT owlets during one of the rainiest summers in history. If you don't know, barn owls cannot fly in rain. Which means that they cannot hunt and feed their babies. That these owls were able to succeed in that weather is, basically, a miracle. This is such a sweet tribute to the pair, and the music is hauntingly perfect. Enjoy! And if you need more owlet action, you can always pop in on Molly and McGee's brood. Happy Saturday my friends.

Amazing! I am hooked on two owl cams, two hummingbird nest cams, and a bald eagle nest cam. I may need an intervention.

Happy Mother's Day to you, Mamma. Enjoy your babies this weekend!
