    It will be like a family reunion with everyone watching together, and of course Carlos, Donna and Austin keeping the cameras
    rolling when they are not on vacation. This feels like
    “Christmas in July” to me….I am so happy.

  46. Mary B. Says:

    Molly and McGee have been the best therapy I have ever had. The first clutch helped me got thru martial problems; the second clutch-divorce. The blue birds came on just as I am trying to adjust to being alone. And comes a day when I think I cant take it anymore—this beautiful picture appears before Me!
    Carlos, Donna and Austin–
    You have been assigned a special mission by the Lord above!
    I will be ever grateful for your generosity!
    You have touched many hearts…..mine included, I am so blessed.

    • Mareoooo Says:

      Mary B. – please know that you are NEVER alone ….. all of us MODs are always here for you!

  47. Susan Belloff Says:

    OMG! I LOVE them! They look like they are posing…They are, after all, celebrities! :)
    Thanks for sharing!
    By the way, I watched the video of you and Austin out in the field observing the owls in the sycamore tree. It was great!!! Loved the whole video. Laughed so hard when the table leg fell in the gopher hole and then again when Austin’s chair leg also found a gopher hole. You two make the best team! It was so funny how the owls stood up and showed themselves the whole time you were off getting the battery and then scrunched back down in the hollow of the tree as soon as you got back. They gave us a great show while you were gone!

  48. yay owls Says:

    Thank you!

  49. GeniaKnitz Says:

    We were chatting today about favorite owls in various categories; made me smile that almost every favorite was a Royal owl or owlet. As most beautiful owl – McGee; most beautiful owlet – Austin. Favorite owl – tied between Max and Wes. Etc. And here M&M are tonight!

  50. Joan from Colorado Says:

    Carlos, you are so considerate to let us look in at the most famous owls in the world once again.. thank you thank you, Joan

  58. moniq Says:

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! Carlos and Donna. ((hugs to you both))) Love being home again with Molly and McGee <3

  59. What a sweet photo. It’s obvious to me why McGee got the nickname “Leggs McGee”! Thank you so much for the update and the lovely photo. I haven’t been able to tune in for the hunting grounds field trips, but I hope to view the videos soon. I have watched the recording that is currently playing on Ustream, of the young owls in the tree. They are so precious and how exciting to see them “in the wild”. You, Donna & Austin have given us so much already, and you continue to give. Thank you!

    Why do seeing these owls make me sooo Happy?

    Thank you Carlos Have a Festive 4th!

  73. Audrey Says:

    I think you need to rename the blog to “The Owl Factory”. Molly will soon be worn out if she starts another brood. LOL

  74. June Schafer Says:

    Doin’ my happy dance!!!

  75. Treva Roberts Says:

    Yeah, we’re going to have a second clutch for 2011.

  76. CAROL HODGES Says:

    Wasn’t about this time last year Molly laid the eggs for the second clutch? They must really like THEIR OWL BOX!
    Last year during our hot spell, one egg hatched on my birthday, but didn’t survive the heat…..I was sooooo SAD!

  77. Deb Says:

    Carlos & Donna I want to thank you so much for your generosity in letting us see Molly & McGee again last night and today. Hubby and I had today as vacation day and it has been the best seeing them again and chatting with ole friends. Thank you so much and sending smiles to you


  78. flukestail Says:

    Molly girl! Made my day to see you. What a treat!

  79. donna smith Says:

    This is so exciting. I have been so missing Molly. Thanks so much Carlos.

  80. mandozee Says:

    Hay Carlos: what a cute picture. Thanks for the peek into the box to watch them. mandozee.

  81. I am so thrilled!! M&M are my favorite couple (next to Donna and Carlos!)

  82. joly2u Says:

    Boy, that’s a real “Leggs” McGee photo, I love it! They are so cute together. I guess the tax shock was a cold-water intro to the adult world for hard-working Austin, but I think the 2nd video sounds very exciting. Thanks for letting us see them as much as possible, Carlos, you’re tops.
