Three Owlets Keep Coming Back
April 30, 2011
Hopefully, we fixed another issue today, we replaced our internet router. For sometime now we have been having the wireless internet connection drop in and out. It appeared to have been the internet provider and it may well have been but today the wireless connection quit completely so down to Fry’s Electronics for a new one I went.
The question now is “Did it fix the problem?” To be honest, I am not sure because before I could get home with the new router the wireless started working again. I replaced it anyway and after a call or two to the maker we got the new router working. Have you noticed how these supposedly plug and play items are more like plug and call for help.
It was kind of interesting that they gave a website for help first but if the router is not working one does not have an internet connection. Like I have said before, technology is good for the brain, it keep the neurons firing or is that swear words under my breath that you are hearing.
Now, that I got that off my chest, the owlets were up, down and flying around last night. One owlet must have gone to the ground a dozen times. Don’t panic, they can get back up to the box by themselves; it just may take them a little time, in some cases a day or two. I think too often people jump the gun and run to help instead of letting them learn the lessons written in The Owl Book of the Ages. Austin and I got to witness again last night that when a younger owlet goes to the ground and has trouble getting back, one of the older owlets goes to it and shows it show to get back to the box by using natural steps such as fences, ladders and trees. This also happened in The Second Clutch, which I documented with photos of the event on the blog.
What I find most interesting about the Third Clutch is that three owlets keep coming back to the box during the day time where the oldest owlet fledged over a week ago and has not been back in the box during the day but has shown up every night since it fledge.
Austin Faure made the Union Tribune Newspaper today, the North Country Section. The front page heading was “Hooting All The Way To The Bank.” It tells the story of him making the DVD to help pay for his college education. Way to go Austin.
Since several people have asked me, no, there will not be a Third Clutch Photography Book, but you can get The Third Clutch Family Portrait on Café Press as a Large Framed Print to complete your collection. And it is on sale right now.
