Jody the youngest owlet does not make it
August 21, 2010
Jody the youngest owlet did not make it. We are not sure why, it could have been the heat but we doubt since it was only 87 degrees today. We are saddened by this event. We will keep you updated. Again, this shows how special the first clutch was when all the owlets made it to fledge. Knowing the odds, I mentioned just this morning that we could have some more drama, but here I am shaking my head after seeing all there owlets bouncing around this morning, not believing it really did happen.
Even though this is nature we have turned off the cameras in respect of our viewers. Owls have their own way of dealing with death of an owlet so the cameras have been turned off until the way of the owls is completed.
