Last week our birder, Lee Pauser, put up a camera to watch the owl box that has 7 owlets inside. He grabbed some amazing photos of why we started this program two years back. You'll see the hen bringing in either a gopher, mole or vole on three separate occasions.
Despite the help from the owls, my gopher guy's have caught 1,100 exactly year to date. We are experiencing the worst rodent season by far. Maybe it is time to get the gopher tunnel blaster!
