an irruptive year
« on: December 09, 2011, 07:44:17 AM »
for the coolest owl we have. 


They are headed south in mass numbers




Apparently, Hawaii just got its first record of a snowy owl, showed up at the airport in the capital.
What a problem bird, couldn't catch it, it wouldn't leave, so they blasted it.  Yep, shot it dead. ::)

If arctic owls can get to Hawaii, they could get to your house.  Be on the look out if you like this sort of thing. 8)

I hope some come to winter down here. Plenty of mice and cats to eat.

I laughed. Hard. I died a little inside, but I was laughing on the outside.  ;D

Hey, it *would* look cool on my mantle. Doesn't mean I'm going to go out and shoot one, but we can at least acknowledge the truth of the statement.

I think it looks cool sweeping silently over a field and dropping like tens kind of death on a poor field mouse.

reminds me of a book I had when I was a kid. A true story about a wildlife activist in Vermont who found a 'dead' owl near his house and took it home to bring to the local game warden. Well it wasn't on his mantle but it wasn't dead either! imagine waking up to a recently thawed out and very upset great horned in your living room! now that would be cool! asuming you don't have small pets.

Well, I don't like rye IPAs, so there!

All in fun, of course. Different strokes and all that.

Owls are okay, but I really want one if those California Condors hanging from the ceiling right above my mounted elephant head.  Now that would be COOL.
