We have owls-specifically barn owls. Three of them live in the old-broken down trailer on the hill. I found out we had them one night when I heard them screeching. Yes, they screech…no nice, soft hoots here. You can check out they’re sound below.
They come out at dark and seem to hunt in a circular pattern that starts around our house and moves outward then back inward several times a night.
(I know this because I sleep with the window open and they wake me up.)
They will perch on our buildings and hunt directly out of our yard.
Here’s what they leave behind:
I’m not complaining. I figure with three of them hunting the property our rodent population will come back to a reasonable level. That in turn means our snake population will too and that we might be able to have a garden next year.
Yay owls! Yay cycle of life! Yay Mother Nature!
