DVD Sale Extended

Paper Howliday Ornaments

Max climbs ladder with a mouse

Young Kestrel climbs ladder too!

While some are swearing that Molly and McGee are bonding I have not seen that, but what I have seen is McGee attempting to mate and Molly being uncooperative. Here are two clues: Once Molly starts mating she stays in the box and McGee brings her treats or at least that has been the pattern in the past.  Molly is not staying in the box and McGee has not brought her any treats, so please don’t swear so loudly, young kids might overhear you. 
As you can see, Donna and I spent the evening cutting out our Free Downloaded Paper Howliday Ornaments. Great fun! To get yours just click on the image of the paper ornaments above.
It seems both the owlets and the kestrels like the ladders when fledging. That is a young kestrel that was fledging.

We have had such a great response to Austin’s DVD sale that per your request we have extended it one day.  (20% OFF)  He is now working on paying for year four since he passed the 3,000th sold DVD this past week. Help send a good kid to college: buy Molly’s Story DVD – a documentary.  All profits go into Austin’s College Fund. So far 105 have taken advantage of the DVD 20% OFF SALE.

Barbara Allen has put all the Molly Songs on a CD since so many of you have asked for it. You can purchase the Molly Song CD from Barbara for only $8.00 plus Shipping and Handling.  Remember when you buy a CD, $1 goes to Mead School and $1 goes to San Marcos Community Foundation. Just send Barbara an email BARLYOWL@aol.com  and let her know how many you want. Don’t forget to send her your mailing address.  

Eric and I will be live at 9 AM PST this morning. Eric will be giving us an update on all the book projects.

Carlos, Donna and Austin

    What a joy to watch these few precious days! Such fun to see M&M hanging out together. Thank you so much, Carlos.

  2. PegRod Says:

    “Each moment is different from any before it, each moment is different, it is now.” (Incredible String Band lyrics)

    Those words are simple, but simply describe the joys of The Owl Box and the joy that Carlos brings to Molly Fans with each blog update and inspiring photo of nature’s diversity and beauty.

    With a grateful heart and mind, I will never be able to express how much all this means to me, but fellow Molly Fans and Friends simply do understand!

  3. Janie Branison Says:

    Carlos, please address the rumor that you and Donna are going to Canada for 5 months. Whether or not you broadcast after you get back from Hawaii, just know that we appreciate getting to see Molly and McGee now. Thanks for all you have done for us.

  4. didinp Says:

    I hope your right Carlos. Maybe Molly is just guarding the Box so that no new family takes over.

    Enjoying it anyway – very Thankful for what a blessing you have brought to us this year.


  5. 1SkatrPie Says:

    Carlos, if it is NOT a rumor that you and Donna are
    going to Canada, you will surely be passing through
    Bellingham,WA, as we are the last city before the
    Canadian border. Would you consider allowing me to
    take you and Donna to lunch here in our magnificent
    hamlet between the mountains and the sea? It would
    be a privilege and i PROMISE NOT TO MENTION CLUTCH 3! Seriously, I’m sure I can keep that promise, just
    please don’t ask anyone who knows me! Thank you.

  6. muttsfan Says:

    Carlos just watched you and Erik, I know there is a tendancy for people to only comment when they are unhappy, but most of us understand how much work this all has been and appreciate your hard work. I love to see your beautiful photography, and you have inspired me to go back to my old photo hobby ( getting a new camera soon). Love it when the camera is on, and also understand that when it is off there is a good reason. I really hope that you do get a Kestrel hatch (and that you stream it) – they are among my favorite raptors also. Thanks and have fun in Hawaii – Mary Alban

  7. Donna Says:

    I’m sure that M&M are guarding the box for when their ready to have the 3rd clutch.
    Thanks for all the enjoyment you have given.

  8. Charli Says:

    I just wanted to ask if maybe tonight if you could switch the cam to inside the box at night? I know they’ve been inside at night and I would love to see them up close!

  9. Kenneth L R. Patchen Says:

    Whatever happened to the pop-up cards?

  10. Lori G Says:

    Thank You Carlos & Donna & Eric for Everything!! This has been a unique, amazing, and incredibly moving experience. Never to be forgotten. Thank You, Bless You and Enjoy Your Lives! MODS, “Friends for Life”, stay in touch http://www.ustream.tv/socialstream/3034451#

  11. kit (pensacolakit) Says:

    Thanks for all you do to Carlos, Donna, Austin, Eric, Chris & John. It was great to see M & M again in live action. The new products are great! The owl box has been a wonderful experience and it has definitely enriched and enlightened the lives of the MODS around the world. Molly, McGee and all their kids have brought such fun and joy to all of us.

  12. Jody Veith Says:

    Have been a devoted follower since Feb. I find it hard to find enough words to express my appreciation for all the joy this experience has brought me. A simple Thank You from my heart will have to suffice.


  13. Sherry Kelly Says:

    It was a great broadcast Carlos and Eric! Thanks Eric for getting answers to those questions that all of us MODs have been having! Carlos, I don’t blame you and Donna for wanting your lives back! Please know how much we appreciate all you have done and do, and if we can only have the cameras on from time to time, we will settle for that, but, we would love to have them on for extended periods with you making live comments as before, whenever it is convenient for you. It wasn’t just the owls that made The Owl Box such a unique experience. It was also you 3 Royals, the MODs on SS and Chat, and the guests you had on from time to time – the whole package – that made it so special. Thanks again!!! I will be checking the BLOG!

  14. Amy Johnson Says:

    I love Molly and Mcgee :)

  15. CAequuslvr Says:

    It was just really nice to see you and Eric this morning. Wonderful to know that there will be a photo book for Clutch 2!! So glad Molly the Owl Books is doing well.

    Carlos, I (and I am sure many others) are so happy for these past days of live video of Molly & McGee. PegRod in comment #2 said it all so beautifully.

    You & Donna have a great time in Hawaii. I am sure there will be some gorgeous photos for us to view on the blog.

    Take Care & Be Well

  16. barb stegun Says:

    Carlos, thanks for the new down load on ornaments, just noticed that you are missing having a Wesley ornament..by the way saw Molly and Mcgee having a private moment this morning 5:54am…will see if Molly kept her knees together 11/16…thankx for all you do

  17. Barbara Bostwick Says:

    I was happy to be able to watch this morning’s broadcast with you and Eric AND especially thrilled to read about recent events after the cameras were turned off on October 20. We just returned from a four week tour of Turkey and since we left on October 14, before the camera was turned off, your recent postings answered questions we had.

    Thanks for all of your consistent hard work to allow us this special treat of watching Molly, McGee and owlets. Now, enjoy your long overdue travels and please add me to your list of new posts via e-mail. Thank you so much

  18. PegRod Says:

    Great Broadcast this morning! Thank you for all the updates from Eric Blehm and Carlos Royal. For those who missed the broadcast, here is the link:


    We look forward to a new Coffee Table Book of the Second Clutch of Molly and McGee (owlets Ashely and Carrie)

    We understand that the Coffee Table Book of the First Clutch of Molly and McGee (Max, Pattison, Austin and Wesley) will be out in January or so in the new year (2011)

    We understand that the Pop-Up Cards were PreOrders and they will also be delivered in about January 2011 or so.

    We understand that the Baby Board Book will be available for PreOrders on the Molly the Owl Books website any day now.


    And for all the other new products!

    Christmas is coming! Free paper owl ornaments for decorating and remembering The Owl Box are on Cafe Press, too!


    The fun continues, thanks to Chris Adams, Eric Blehm, and Austin Faure (DVD on sale now!), and Donna and Carlos Royal. And of course, all the volunteer moderators in VacaChat … and thanks to VacaDude for hosting a place for live chat to continue for those with MOD who want to stay in touch.


    Lots to be grateful for this coming Thanksgiving!

  19. Suzanne Hannah Says:

    Carlos, Donna & Austin
    Thank you so very much for all your hard work bringing us this wonderful view into nature. I, like so many would love to view the owls non stop but we also realize you have a life. So whatever you can give us in between trips will be greatly appreciated. Enjoy your travels, be safe, much love to you and Donna.

  20. Lana Moore Says:

    I began after Molly was on the Nightly News. I know that hundreds of MODS on SS get together via http://www.ustream.tv/socialstream/3034451 esapecially nightly and chat about anything… they have formed a community (and can’t wait for Molly and YOU to return anytime. Others have gone to other sites like the FL Wildlife on ustream so that they can watch/chat/ have community together. They just have formed this life altering friendship and it’s touching. THANK YOU. I tune in now and then, and am still amazed. So if you put all the sites that people gather at, it would be worth it. And if Eric did the same, it would be grand. Gals have formed groups for all on FB, too– “deet deet deet” and “My Owl Friends” — it hasn’t slowed down a bit since the owlets fledged!
    HAPPY THANKSGIVING to both of you, as I know many MODS are thankful to you and to each other. Mary Ellis in Santee, CA died and hundreds of cards are flowing to her husband Jay as I write.
    Have a great winter traveling!! God speed.

    • Lori G Says:

    You guys are great, what can I say. Thank you so much for everything! What a nice unexpected surprise to see M&M these past few days ! The facebook and e-mail frenzy was happening as soon as we all realized that they were back up for a bit.

    They are proudly hanging in my foyer.

  32. captainteneal Says:

    Is that an old picture of Max climbing the ladder with a mouse? I don’t recall seeing it before. Surely she’s not still hanging around?

  33. Joanne Borle Says:

    Dear Carlos and Donna,
    Oh my .. its the count down to when you leave for Hawaii. I hope you have a wonderful holiday there. I want to thank you for turning on the cam these last few days for us…. gee, how did you know we would love it so.. hmmm? I did see some bonding but I have no idea if Molly is sticking around or not.. is she inside the box during the day? How long would it be before Molly started laying eggs/another clutch??
    So your next stop on the list, after Hawaii, is Canada… that is so neat. Happy travels… will you post the occasional photo? I’ll keep checking the blog for updates.
    PS Thanks for your updates too :0)
    Take care.

    Way to go Austin! Be safe, enjoy your trip, and Happy Thanksgiving Carlos, Donna, and Austin!!

  35. Phyllis Benson Says:

    Carlos and Donna,

    It is a treat just to be able to see Molly and McGee whether it be in black and white or without sound. I am so thankful you are allowing us view them while you are between trips! Have a great time in Hawaii.

  36. Treva Roberts Says:

    Carlos thank you so much for keeping us MODs in your thoughts, both you & Donna are in ours along with prayers for safe journies. What a pleasure to see Molly & McGee again, I think they are having a vacation like you and Donna. LOL It was fun to see Eric again with his updates. Austin, is a fine young man with a great future ahead. Enjoy Hawaii and Ashley we’ll be thinking of you and Donna. Blessing Treva

  37. Holly Sue Says:

    Dear Carlos – I really enjoyed seeing and hearing you and Eric! So delighted that there will be a second clutch book and look forward to the board book and other “Molly” items as well. These days with the owls have been such an unexpected treat – thank you so much!! Happy trip!!
    Love and best wishes to you all! Holly Sue

  38. Linda Scroggin Says:

    Carlos, the picture of Max on the ladder, when was that taken?


    • PegRod Says:

      Beautifulchef – The blog has all the previous posts, but the only way to see them is to scroll back from the bottom of this page. The entry with the photo of Max on the ladder is from this post of May 26, 2010:


      Maybe one day Carlos can publish a book with all the blog entries and photos! Wouldn’t that be great!

      In the meantime, a rainy or snowy day where you stay inside would be a good day to take a sentimental journey back in time by scrolling back through all of the Molly’s blog posts. Hundreds of fantastic photos!
