    Enjoyed the owl feeding short. Reminded me of feeding the barred owls live mice in my friends back yard. The barred owls did not perch, as they were not hand raised but are will, and simply snatched the mouse from my hand in flight. Watching the owl swoop in from a tall white pine, soundlessly, and grab that mouse without so much as grazing my gloved hand with it’s talons was amazing! The owls nest in a box my body built for them especially. He’s gone all out with video cameras, a pond that he stocks with small fish which the owls feed on too. He’s been doing this for over a dozen years, and has seen the pair raise at least two chicks a year.

    For a recent family birthday party, my niece hired a falconer to come and show us his animals, including several birds of prey. The owl was gorgeous, if not overly bright, but the interesting thing was that when he was being shown, the local blackbirds immediately took note and started flocking menacingly. They didn’t react to the other birds, though.

      Julie, that’s a fantastic idea,,,,,,,,think we’ll check into that. Very clever, beats a bounce house!

        I don’t remember the guy’s name, but he does shows & demonstrations all up and down the west coast. If you see a falconer at a Ren Faire in California, Oregon or Washington, it’s probably him.

          Julie, if you really like falcons and live anywhere near Colorado Springs, look into visiting the Air Force Academy’s falconry program. The falcon is USAFA’s mascot, and they have cadets trained as falconers who show the birds to school groups as well as taking them to football games (where they presumably terrify the opposing team). Here’s an introduction to the academy’s newest falcon, Nova:

    Here’s a short from Cornell’s ornithology lab about one of the smallest owls– burrowing owls (Athene cunicularia)– which weigh on average less than half a pound and can run along the ground as well as fly. In the U.S., they can be found in Texas, Florida, and southern California, and have been described as looking like “beer cans on stilts.” They eat mostly large bugs and small rodents, which suggests that they’re prepping for the Great Reset:

      Damn, those are cute silly-looking little owls!

      This past week I was doing research on a property in Cape Coral, FL where a new home was proposed to built and found out it had a burrowing owl tunnel right in the middle. The owner paid almost $90k for that 1/4 acre property a couple months ago and cannot build on it until the owls abandon the nest. Encountered the same thing on another property last year but with gopher turtles.

      20 years ago I was involved with the development of a 90 acre parcel on an island and the design-development phase and all the infrastructure was installed it was discover that an “abandoned” bald eagle nest was located within 1100 feet of the site. The state got involved and shut the whole thing down. They said the nest has to have been “documented” as abandoned for a period of no less than 7 years. Many millions of dollars were lost because of this ruling. Notice, there were no animals directly associated with this tactic. A large bundle of sticks 40 feet up in a tree, with the help of some tyrannical gov’t bureaucrat drones deemed it necessary to damage many people. In a sane world those drones would have been killed outright.

    Runaway truck ramps:
    Expectedly, those are spaced apart on the highway about every 100 yards in WVA.

    spending 30 yrs.hauling produce from calif to B.C. noticed that the burrowing owls are very clever in where they build their nests, under the street lights on the off ramps out in the desert, the bugs are attracted to the lights & instant dinner, pretty smart. kinda like the blackbirds along I-5 in the valley they will patrol just up to the fog line after semis go by getting the squished bugs, but never crossing the fog line, or the birds at the truck stops in the overhead swooping down as soon as a new truck comes in & picking the bugs off the radiators & front ends. not stupid!
