About that other bird...
Owly was last seen the morning of April 3, taking shelter on an unseasonably cold, windy, wet morning. Owly hung out most of the day, then left. I knew it was the same owl because of the missing tufts above the right ear. I've read owls use these houses for nesting only - no love connection, no need to hang around! I'm thrilled Owly paid us several visits, and maybe next year there will be owlets. I'll be sure to make sure the house is clean and ready for Owly's return next spring.
