“Ah! Mama! There’s a weird Paparazzo pointing a bazooka at us.”
Yesterday, David, a neighbor to the north, said he saw two owlets down by where he lives. We went to check it out and only saw an adult owl. I went back to see if they were out tonight. Not only were they out, but the owlet’s mama was also feeding one of them a squirrel.
This owlet looks like the older of the two.
The mama was not too sure about the pesky Paparrazo.

Mary and Paul were still plotting their flight across the ditch tonight. Peter is still waiting for them.

A delightful post, Timothy! 🦉🌄
Such a wonderful story to follow of these owlets. Brilliant sky tonight, Tim.
Gosh for one moment I thought the older owl a cat perched like that.
The way these owlies and love birds can camouflage is just remarkable.
New Owlies in the wood
The paparazzi with his bazooka
Made me crackle 😂😂
Thanks, abvr. Happy you got a crackle out of it.
What a hilarious write.
You are most welcome Timothy
Always these paparazzi…. a real pain in the ass for owls – LOL
Many thanks, Timothy, for all your wonderful owl stories:)
You are welcome, Martina.
Ah, more Wowls!!!!! I’m sure they too will learn to appreciate the paparazzo recording their history!
Those fiery skies are gorgeous! Happy cows!
Bet you were thrilled to find them!
I certainly was.
well, may i say Momma, you and the wowlets pose beautifully. you were made to be photographed.
The were made to blend in and made to be photographed. That’s getting a bit oxymoronic wouldn’t you say? Thanks, Shey.
It says it all
A new family! “Yours” is more used to you and have blessed you with the ability to really share their daily lives.
True,, but these new owls put up with me invading their privacy. Thanks, Dale.
Yes, they did. They must have gotten a message from your regulars 😉
Probably. They all hoot to each other.
I can just hear it now: “Don’t worry about that guy with the weird-looking thing he puts up to his face. He’s ayt…”
Hahaha! I’m sure their are not that nice in their description of me.
Well, I disagree. I bet Papa Owl told them that the dude was only trying to be nice and share their lives with his faithful readers…😁
Oh you of optimistic outlooks.
Me of generous spirit 😉
That one owl was giving you the old stink eye! That’s an incredible sunset!!
She sure is. Stupid Paparazzo. Thanks, Liz.
😀 You’re welcome, Tim.
On a first picture really fears is in a eyes 👌
Sky is marvellous warm colour 💖 Hello good cow’s 💞
You’d be scared too if I pointed the Bazooka lens at you. Thanks, Meli.
Yes, I wood 🤗
The sunsets are so beautiful, as are the owls! These are wonderful memories you are documenting here, Tim!
So nice to see the owl-family outside!
They are the cutest. I keep looking for the squirrel in the picture… did you get the shot?
What a treat that sky is. I can’t bare them to leave. 💖
The mama is pulling a piece off the squirrel in the first photo. You can see the squirrel’s arm. You can see its body and tail on the cottonwood under mama’s foot in the other photos. Thanks, Cindy.
oh I have to go look again. wow… Nature at its best.. I’ve been chasing lizards out of the mouths of the cats again in the house.. tis the season.You’re so welcome.
Beautiful and gorgeous sunset.
Awesome photos Tim! The owls don’t know how lucky they are to have you as a neighbourhood watch.
We are the lucky ones. Thanks, Tone.
My first post from you as I am back in BlogLand and what do I see… owls and a beautiful sunset. Thank you Timothy!
Enjoy your weekend!
You are welcome, Nancy. Have a great weekend.
Aww, there’s no end to nature’s surprises where you live. More owls sound good to me.
They should give the beaver their land back.
That last shot must be the most spectacular shot of cows at sunset ever taken. Cows are so cute!
Thanks, Resa. At least they haven’t taken out the beaver dams this year so far. Maybe the fire chief talked some sense into the conservancy. He needs the water behind those beaver dams if the bosque catches on fire.
Your conservancy sounds out of touch with nature!
They are a perfect example of if you want to know what a government programs or agency really does, take their name and apply the opposite. Our conservancy conserves nothing. Instead they destroy everything they touch.
How unfortunate! UCH!!!
Hell of GH Owl re-population you got going on down there Tim. We have had zero activity in our woods of any Owls for the last month or so…hoping the Barred start showing up again soon … still need a shot of one for this year’s count.
Super sunset shots … you sure have that owls attention!
