Neighborhood Watch by an Owl

I am so thrilled!  I just took my shower. Had on my bermuda type shorts and a t-shirt, sitting at my computer, when the phone rang.  My neighbor called to tell me there was a large owl sitting on the lines in front of her porch.  It was a cable line.  I grabbed my camera and headed out the door. Did I grab a jacket, no. It was 47°F at the time.  I was nice and warm from my hot shower but my head was still wet!  When there is a bird or critter involved, makes no difference!!! I went down to see if I could see the owl. It's quite dark but they had their porch light on.  I got a picture just as the owl turned to look over at me.  My neighbor's hubby came out with his flashlight and put some light on the owl.  The owl didn't fly.  I got some more pictures!  I then came home. A little chilly but absolutely thrilled to death that I saw this owl. Wasn't quite sure which one it was but knew a couple it wasn't.  I uploaded the pictures to my computer and posted the picture

Critters and Birds

Looking out my window this morning and saw the squirrel in the feeder swing. I really fill it for them! LOL! I walked out on the deck with three dogs chasing squirrels down in the yard and caught a movement out of the corner of my eye. Chippy Chipmunk was visiting also. Probably putting in complaints because I stuffed that hole! I looked out and saw red and decided I would go get my camera and get a couple of pictures! Mr Cardinal moved around in this flowering crab tree a lot but I managed to get a couple of pictures. Great way to continue my morning and it's not even 8 a.m. yet! Have a great day! This is the squirrel swing feeder  This is the hole in the foundation of the house just above the steps. I filled the hole with with the excavated sand a few times Close up of the hole A friend suggested putting in steel wool, which I did and 2 days later, hadn't been removed
