Carrie Swallow Whole Mouse Molly Out For The Day

Molly and Full Moon

McGee brought in mouse which Carrie consumed in a flash. Molly returned to check on the owlets but decided it was okay to take the day off. Both Ashley and Carrie have swallowed a whole mouse this appears to be the trigger that tells Molly she can leave the owlets and roost outside the box. During the first clutch when Wesley swallowed a mouse whole Molly left the box for 22 hours so this appears to be normal.

 Last night the moon was full so I took a photo of the moon and put it in the photo with Molly.  A composite of two photos.

 I have been so glued to this video stream for the last few months; my neighbors have been threatening to call in the mental health people!  LOL!

Thank you both for allowing me the privilege to be a part of this. And yes, this is FUN!

Hi, Donna,

Today is my husband’s birthday and I surprised him with the Four Owlets picture.  He is thrilled and loves being a Molly Watcher as much as I do.

The fabulous picture will remain in its place of honor in our living room and is sure to give us warm feelings all through the coming chilly months.

Thank you and Carlos for the pleasure you have given millions of people everywhere. Your dedication and care are truly owlsome!

All the best,

Jennifer “spoonbread”

I couldn’t wait for the yardman to mow before I sent this. I couldn’t even wait
to be # 25. ;-)

    I love the beautiful photo of McGee. He’s a shadowy figure to me–I only catch occasional glimpses of him, and then he’s in and out so fast that I never get a good look at him.

    Your photographs are excellent!

    Thank you so much for adding the Molly Mister. It’s a lifesaver. Yesterday it was hot here, a few hundred miles north of the owlbox, and I wished I had a Madame Butterfly Mister.

    yipee!!! I just got an email from CafePress. My order is ready to be shipped – except for the Molly Sign!!!! They are still working on it. Looks like everyone is trying to get the big prize. At least I will be getting a mug and picture in the next couple of days.

    Has UStream changed? I am no longer able to access UStream — it starts to load and then freezes each of the three browsers I’ve used. At least I can come here to the blog to find out what’s happening with this incredible adventure we follow. Is anyone else having this problem?

  8. Anne (postina) Says:

    This whole journey has been an incredible adventure!! And to have an encore performance. WOW! Couldn’t ask for more!!!

  9. Jo Says:

    Just wanted to sign up for blog updates. I loved watching the 1st clutch and the 2nd clutch is just a bonus!!!
