Spring is on the move!
at the farmers' market
The pick-your-own farm
will be open soon.
This little screech owl likes to be gently stroked. His feathers were the softest, smoothest thing you can imagine.
He lost his eye when he was hit by a car so he will never be able to be released in the wild. He has a new job as an education owl.
We had a nice visit with the owl lady. A retired teacher, she moved here from the North to start a new career taking care of injured owls and educating the public, especially Low Country children, about them.
This is a barred owl.
His call sounds like, "Who-who-who, Who cooks for you?"
And I know, this photo has nothing to do with spring.
His daddy took it while my daughter was gone and sent it with the caption, "Not sure what he was doing over there on the couch by himself."
