    Your photos are breathtaking Carlos! Thank you so much for allowing the world to observe this incredible act of nature. My first grades students in Escondido were fascinated by the owlets and enjoyed hearing your talks with other schools. Again, thank you!

    I think I had TEARS in my Eyes when I was watching our little ones taking off. See how I said “our little ones”? I’m so Tickled to have bought the e-book so I will have this WONDERFUL Memory.
    Thank You Carlos, Donna, Eric and Chris!

  12. Donna Simonson Says:

    There are not enough words to describe the unspeakable joy that you have brought to so many. I will always remember to say, “Gee wasn’t that fun and I was a part of it.” I hope we have that written in the e book because in very simple words you have captured the whole experience. Many, many thanks to you Carlos and everyone you surrounded yourself with to bring us all together from around the world. I know God is smiling and saying, “A job well done my faithful servant.”

  13. Susan Belloff Says:

    One of the highlights of my day is to look at these pictures. They are so beautiful even though looking at these particular photos is bitter sweet. Soon our owls will be gone but as Carlos says it has been so much fun and I am so glad I was a part of it. Thank you Carlos, Donna and Austin for giving me this opportunity to be a part of an experience I have truly loved.

  14. Mrs. Cox Says:

    It has been wonderful watching these babies grow up. My son is now an owl lover like his mom and he’s only 2. Thank you for everything Carlos. WHat a gift you have provided for many. God Bless.

  15. SusanfromAZ Says:

    Thank-you Carlos for being so willing to make additions to the box! The porch and other little fledging areas seem like are very well built and the owlets are using them to learn to fly! Cheers!

    How you got these wonderful shots I will never know, this was a true calling for you Carlos, and your family. These are breath taking shots, and we are so lucky to have been along on this ride.
    I can imagine how sad you will be to see them fly off….

  18. Jeri Says:

    Carlos and Donna,
    The adventures of Molly, McGee, Max, Pattison, Austin, and Wesley have been a truly remarkable journey. The memories you have created by dedicating your time and effort will always be with me. As they say, “all good things must come to an end”, however, because of your awesome photos, the memory will travel with me through the rest of my days. Thank you and bless you!

    PS also Dudley :)

    I am in awe! I have sit and watched the beauty of God’s work right in front of me thanks to you!! I am from a very small town in NC and remember when I was small, my grand dad telling me “All creatures, big and small have a purpose.” You have gave children and adults everywhere a chance to see NATURE up close! THANKS so very much! and please do it again!! I will spread the news!! Dale c Triplett!

    i feel very privileged to be able to enjoy this beautiful clutch of fledgling owlets … thanks for your focus, time and energy!
    (one can’t help wonder if there’s more information or even schematics for everything you did from Owl Box start to cameras and streaming?! )
