We will not be broadcasting The Owl Box in 2011. Last year, when Molly showed up, Donna and I put our plans on hold while we broadcast The Owl Box. We have decided not to do that this year because at our age (closing in on 70) we do not believe it is a good idea to put ones dreams on hold. Molly was a once in a lifetime event and we will never forget her or the wonderful people we met because of her.
While 99.9% of the Molly experience was wonderful, we had our share of threats, not only to us, but to Molly and The Owl Box and as this past weekend in Tucson proves, it only takes one kook to turn an event into a real tragedy. There were also those that wanted us imprisoned and filed complaints with local, state and federal authorities because they had different views than we had when it came to the owl box, feeding the owlets and flash photography. Others did and continue to just make up stuff and post it on other sites as fact to create controversy. I share this not to complain but to let you know that broadcasting The Owl Box was not all honey and roses.
We have not reconnected any of the cameras so we have no information as to activity inside the owl box. Donna and I plan to spend most of our time traveling in 2011 and we want to thank everyone for their support.
There are several ways to remember Molly and The Owl Box.
You can order a copy of Molly and McGee, a coffee table book with over 100 of my favorite photos from the first clutch. This book is due to arrive almost any day now; we are just waiting on the ship to arrive at LA Harbor. If all goes perfectly, they could be signed and in the mail by January 24th. We have our fingers crossed. http://mollytheowlbooks.com/store/books-bookmarks/molly-and-mcgee-coffee-table-photography-book.html
