So last week, I discovered that we had a baby owl in our shrubs right next to our screened in porch. Well she's been there everyday since! She leaves at night to hunt, but every morning she's back in her spot. At first we named her Godric but then discovered she was a girl, so we changed her name to Millificent.
How do we know she's girl? The males sit in higher trees and hoot all day. The females just screech every now and then. She is so freaking cute! The other I was looking for her after I got home from work and she was sitting right on the railing of our deck. She let me get about two inches from her face with my camera. I hope she stays for a long time!
btw- she's a great horned owl.
