Invisible Force Shield Working, No Owlet Go Past Door

Last night Molly and McGee brought in nine treats and removed four. This is keeping the box clean and well stocked with fresh food. Also, there was concern that the owlets might fall out the door but I would like to point out that even though you can see the owlet on OB2 looking out the door they are actually inside the box as the photo above demonstrates. It is as if there is an invisible force shield at the door and even if they did stumble out there is a patio porch to catch them. 

This second clutch is much different than the first clutch because of the reduced number of owlets and the size of the food brought in. While there has been much concern about Molly and McGee not bringing in as many treats and that the owlets might not be getting enough food actually just the opposite has occurred. It is true that they have not brought in as many treat but the size has more than made up for the difference.  This is demonstrated by how many treats that Molly and McGee have removed from the owl box during the second clutch.  Only one treat was removed from the box during the entire first clutch.

    I am so fascinated by both Molly and McGee this clutch. Being the late night moderator, I hardly ever get to see McGee anymore, he comes more early morning now. I love your photographs Carlos. McGee is such a beautiful owl. He really does look happy in the above photograph. Thank you so much for the opportunity to enjoy Molly, McGee, Ashley and Carrie with you and the rest of the Owl Box viewers.

    I think the best upgrade on the owl box is the porch. Molly seems to use it a lot, and I just bet that the owlets will, too! Great job, Carlos!
