Barn Owl Video at Cinnabar Hills

Our resident bird expert, Lee Pauser, has collected another great video (could only work it in IE) of our newest owlets at Cinnabar Hills.  Lee pointed out to me to pay attention to the sound because you can barely see the owlets under the hen, but I noticed something completely different.  I saw about 5 pellets as the camera entered the box and at least three fresh gophers sitting in front of the hen.  That is 8 less gophers I need to be worrying about and I am sure there will be more.  We do have another hen on eggs and those eggs should be hatching in the next week or two.
