Hawk Scares The Hork Out Of Molly Watchers
September 10, 2010
Molly Watchers got a real scare this morning as Molly was late making her final delivery just around first light and a young Cooper’s Hawk followed her to The Owl Box. The hawk actually attacked the box by flying around it and making loud squawking hawk sounds hopping to scare the owlets out of the owl box but Molly had joined the owlets inside and kept them calm. This dramatic event lasted for over 30 minute and all Molly Watchers could do was watch and hope as their hearts and adrenaline raced. Finally, the young hawk gave up and flew off. As one watcher put it in the chat room, “I could finally breathe.”
This is a prime example of why Barn Owls usually come and go after dark and before first light. Molly got away with a big mistake this morning when she decided to deliver her final treat just at first day light. The video camera actually caught the hawk following Molly to The Owl Box.

It seems in nature there is always drama.
