The Screech Owl

We also have this darling Screech Owl that lives in an Oak tree in our back yard.  It's little hole of a home is straight out of a story book.  He has been deemed, OWL of The Hundred Acre Wood.  He has no interest in our chickens; his eyes are on our quail.  He may look innocent, but he's a craft fella.

    1. My husband wants to close in his hole so he has to find another tree, but I love him so much, pest though he may be.

  5. It is magical having an owl in your garden. We have native New Zealand owls in our trees called Moreporks - they are small and have the most beautiful hoot xo
