Coming up at 2:30 PM PDT we are goitng to try a Skype connection with the Kentuckiana MODs group where they are doing a fund raiser.

Barn owl gala in New Albany tonight shows real owls and new movie

By Steve Polston
The world’s most-famous barn owl – Molly – has her own 24/7 webcast from San Marcos, Ca. and has inspired a dedicated group of owl watchers and conservationists in New Albany, Ind.
Several Molly watchers are raising money and awareness for the Raptor Rehabilitators of Kentucky, which is licensed to rescue barn owls in Indiana and Kentucky.
 
You can get in on the fundraising and awareness campaign at Great Escape Theatres in New Albany tonight at the area’s first showing of the new movie “Legends of the Guardian: The Owls of Ga’Hoole.” The theater is at 300 Professional Court in New Albany, Ind. The phone number is 812-941-9640.
 
Raptor rehabbers currently are caring for 17 owl patients, with the hope that the animals can be restored to health and released into the wild. This pattern of rescue is very effective for owls that have been injured by cars, farm machinery or other accidents. Barn owls are endangered and threatened in this region.
 
The event at the theater is from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., and will feature owls from the rescue center and a name-the-owl contest.
 
You can comfortably stop by the awareness campaign and still have time to see the movie.
 
Some of the Molly watchers from the area have discovered previously unknown friends on birder chat rooms and on the social network site Facebook, and decided that holding an event in conjunction with the new movie would be a positive educational experience and help raise funds and awareness.
 
The name-the-owl contest is scheduled to be Skyped with the San Marcos Molly site tonight.
 
You can check in on Molly at The Owl Box or by Googling “Molly”. Molly’s webcam has logged more than 18 million hits.

    Carlos, I was one of the attendees at the Kentuckiana MOD meet and raptor rehab fundraiser. It was so great to have the Skype connection with you. I am anxious to learn how much money we raised for this worthy cause. It was also so much fun to see barn owls up close, though they were not as pretty and Molly and Leggs.

    Thank you so much for all you do and for adding to our meeting.

  8. Tina in KY Says:

    I didn’t know about the Kentuckian MOD get-together (although it’s in Indiana) wish I had heard of it sooner, I might have tried to attend. Also, if there are any more buttons made, I want them. So far I have ordered all I can find (I love button collections) I have only found 6, so if anyone knows of more let me know.

      Tina,
      I found 9 of the 2.25″ – 3.5″ buttons and 11 of the mini buttons by clicking on each category at the Cafe Press site and then each design within the categories.

    This has been an amazing experience since Molly and McGee’s first family. Thank you so much Carlos, Donna and Austin.

  17. Susan Belloff Says:

    Love the picture of Tauntz. Sorry I missed the skype..Ustream was acting up at school so I missed all of Friday evening. What a great idea the MODs of Indiana had! Was there a movie review on Friday? I was looking forward to hearing what Carlos and Donna thought of the Guardians movie. I have the books in my library and a number of kids have read the entire series. However, our local theater is closed for renovations and was wondering if the movie was worth the trip to Syracuse to see it.

    Thank you!
