Carrie Looking For Ashley

Both Ashley and Carrie were out of the box last night. Ashley flew over to the landing pad twice. The second time when she tried to return she missed the landing and did not return. More than likely she in hiding under a bush or roosting in a near by tree.  We will see if she returns tonight? We will start looking for Ashley around 6:30 PM PDT or as soon as it gets dark.

    Thanks so much, Carlos (and Donna and Austin), for posting that account of what happened. It’s extremely helpful to those of us who missed the events last night and missed anything that you might have said about them on KOWL this morning.

  2. Thanks for the photos and update. We on EDT are missing all the night action.

    I trust that Ashley is hold up and okay, thanks for looking for us to reassure we who are worry warts :)

    Love the pictures of Carrie, esp peeking around OB to see where Ashley might have gone.

    As much as I am not looking forward to the cameras shutting done at the end of the month, I am excited for you both going to Hawaii, my favorite vacation place. Enjoy every moment.

    TY again.

    We MODS all appreciate the updates each day to meet our many needs in loving both the Molly and Royal family. That Ashley . . . she’s kinda leaped past Max in dare deviling antics! I hope we find her back in the box this evening especially with the cooler weather we are now experiencing here in So.CA. Carrie does look amazing today standing all alone. Everyday is a gift from you Carlos and Donna. Thank you!

    Love everything about the owls. I have MOD really bad. Cannot imagine being without the owls daily.

    Aloha Carlos & Donna ~

    If you choose to come over to Maui, would love to have a Molly meetup. Can show you where the day flying owl is in Kula, as well as where the barn owls hang out in Maliko Gulch.

    Maui is much more peaceful than O’ahu with other sights to see.

    Thank you Carlos for allowing nature to work its course.

    Another bunch of great photos, Carlos, thank you. I didn’t get to watch last night but I knew there would be drama (what is actually nature happening is always made into drama in the owl box…lol). Anyway, good pictures, not worried about Ashley, she’s had “No Fear” stamped on her forhead since she came out of the egg.
    I was glad to hear the merchandise sites would be kept up and running…never know what I might need for a Christmas gift for someone.

    I am ever so grateful to have found the owlbox and all of the wonderful members I have met there. I guess you could say that I am a MOD fledgling :*))
    Carlos, your photography is magnificent and I am very much looking forward to receiving your coffee table book.
    I appreciate your calming words this morning regarding Ashley. I tend to subscribe human emotions to all other living things, but I pray in this instance the owl is certainly wiser than I.
    Thank you and your family for allowing all of us to have this unforgettable experience.
    Warm Regards ~ Breezy

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, Carlos, for these stunningly beautiful photos and for the awesome gift of the MOD experience from you, Donna, Austin and all the others involved. I have been a daily “lurker” since the NBC news mention and have loved every moment (except when the two owlets died). I shall miss this connection when the owlets (and you) are gone, but hope to check in here for any news from the Royals.

    With best wishes for a fabulous picnic and thrilling travels,

    Thank you for the update, Carlos!!! I was wondering if Molly can pick up Ashley with her talons, and fly her up to the owl box? Has that ever been done before? I love all the photos!!!! My family is looking forward to the picnic!

    Donna and Carlos,

    Thank You both so very much for all you do for all of us. In my heart I know Ashley is alright because she has too good of parents to make her not o.k. I will be checking for sure. Good Luck tonight on your search. I’m watching from the Finger lakes Region in Upstate N.Y. When I look out my kitchen window I am looking at Watkins International Race Track. It’s a beautiful time of year here:)

    Dear Carlos,
    Thanks for taking such good care of those of us with and without feathers! You pix are beyond compare – you should call National Geographic. I keep loosing the chat when I try and sign in. I mailed you a check for Austin’s DVD. You should get it tomorrow or the next day.

    May I have Carrie jumping in with both feet on Cafe Press as a framed pic, tile, coaster, anything?
    Thanks!!! Love you guts! Thank you for everything!
