The Barn Owls of San Marcos
MOD For Life
McGee's Right Wing
Molly's Left Wing
Posted in Uncategorized | 23 Comments »
Thank you for posting the closeups of Molly’s and McGee’s wings. That is interesting. Maybe in your second life you can come back as a teacher! I think you would have made a great one.
What continues to fascinate me (and I think others) is how dynamic everything is in The Owl Box. Carlos (and company), once again, has provided something for everyone! The close ups of Molly’s and McGee’s wings will be useful for scientific studies to follow, and the fact that he was careful enough to denote that it was a “right” or “left” wing is invaluable for future studies. Like Carlos, I am an “observer”, and not an “expert” – what fun to be in the front row seat of this exciting saga! The gift that Carlos, Donna and Austin have given us – this window on the life and times of a common barn owl in San Marcos, California, USA – has allowed the world’s common “observers” to gradually become “uncommon” experts on Molly and McGee and their offspring!
The wing closeups are a nice and helpful addition to the growing collection of excellent photographs by Carlos. It does appear, however, that we are seeing the top side of Molly’s wing and the underside of McGee’s. Perhaps an additional label would be helpful. Also helpful might be a couple more comparative photos and information: 1. same-side wings, showing the same view (from top or underside) ; 2. both a top and underside view of each owl’s left or right wing, or both. This would make the comparisons less “apples-to-oranges” and a bit more useful scientifically. However, it would probably involve a lot of PhotoShopping to accomplish these 2 things, as, luckily, we don’t have the actual wings of either owl to use, as they are still attached to the very-much alive Molly and McGee!
I check Molly’s Box blog each day to see what fantastic new photos Carlos has taken and I’m NEVER disappointed!
Carlos, Have you heard from Wal Mart yet to set up a whole section in there stores for all the items you have for sale. It would make it easier for all the MODS to be able to do one stop shopping and see the things in person. You are a marketing genius. Hope to see you at the picnic.
I am wondering if you got my emails of last week regarding the DVD which I received but is defective. I have not had any reply since then and don’t know if you got the email or not. I tried to post this earlier this morning, here, but for some reason, it didn’t post.
Please let me know
Would like to subscribe by email to this site. Thanks.
