Waldo update

It's getting more and more obvious that the owls are getting bigger.  Waldo is looking in prime shape and I can see that his ear tufts are starting to show up.  It reminds me of those days as a young teen and stuffing tissue into my bra.  Hey, there had to be something in there and Mother Nature sure wasn't accommodating.  Maybe he's doing the same thing to make himself look older to his mom.

One sure sign of owl activity is the prescence of "stuff" at the base of the tree.

Since they eat everything, bones, feathers, fur, etc whatever can't be digested is hacked up in the form of these pellets.  Sorry about the possible loss of appetite if you're eating while reading this, but hey...I spared you a photo of the dead squirrel nearby.  I don't know if that was a reject of the kids or if someone found it and brought it to the family as a delivery.

Well, short post.  Now I need to go fix supper for Left Brain.  Hmmm....I wonder if that squirrel is still there.

Long Live the Queen of  the Road Kill Cafe


  1. Yum, yum road kill is the best. Does being back down South show?

  2. A most interesting post! Following the owls has been a treat, though I will leave the roadkill variety to them.

  3. Oh my "Waldo" is almost all feathered up. She is growing up rather quickly, as they are meant to do. Still think you should find a more feminine name for her. She is apt to misunderstand her role in life if she keeps thinking she is a Waldo. It may change her sexual orientation and then she would have to spend all of her energy fighting for equal rights ... hmmmmm. It is close to dinner time here as well, but I am not serving road kill ... perhaps left overs which resemble road kill will do. Enjoy your dinner Queen of Owl pellets.

  4. I was about to grab me a snack from the fridge till I got here. I have since changed my mind. lol. Great shots, but I'll leave the goodies for you.

    It's going to be a "sweet-sad" day when Miss Waldetta has to lift her wings and fly away. She sure is beautiful. I'm so glad you were able to get all these wonderful photos of her to share.

    I surely hope that your RV is parked far away from the rising water. Stay safe my friend, and have a wonderful night. Hugs, Edna B.
