Owl Festival Mea Culpa

Ya know, we totally overlooked the International Owl Festival, held this past weekend in Houston, Minnesota. (Yes, Virginia, there is a Houston, Minnesota.) To make up for that we offer you this Little Owl Dudelet and his apple lookalike.

Whoo Loves You?

Little old lady owl finds it rather eye-opening when this nice young man gets to nose her.

Why, Sonny, I haven’t felt like this since 1927!

“I got some great shots of the owls that have been living on our school playground in Golden, CO where I am a teacher’s assistant. I can’t believe they have decided to take up residence in our trees considering the children are quite loud when they are outside for recess! They (the owls- and some of the kids) are super adorable. The babies are Hooter, Scooter, and Pooter! The mom is just… mom.” -Amanda M. B.

How Cold Is It? Part II

It’s so cold, the artists formerly known as Snowy Owls have confirmed they now want to be known as I Wanna Go To Miami Owls.

An invasion of Snowy Owls, the magically beautiful bird of the Arctic (and Harry Potter), has been reported this winter across the Midwest, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. One has made it all the way to Little Talbot Island, near Jax, Florida! That is a real Snow Bird invasion.
