Last week Sunday I received an email from Lee Pauser that stated we were going to be the lucky recipients of another rescue barn owl. The owl was found in San Jose nested in a palm tree.
The day Lee brought the young owlet, I was asked if I would place the owlet in the box while Lee took pictures. I wasn't prepared for that, but turned out to be pretty cool considering I grew up hating birds.
The owlet was placed in a box with three other young owlets between holes 1 lake and 5 mountain tee. The idea being that the mother and father would continue to bring food. I thought we may have a barn owl fight club on our hands, but I am happy to report that all of the owls are doing well after the first week.
You can watch a quick video of me placing the owlet in the box here.
