  1. Who ever created this site has done a fantastic job. Thank you so much for all your work!!!!

  2. Jennifer Ryan Says:

    Is this the information that someone mentioned for homeschoolers? If not, or if there is additional information, please send it to me. Thank you. Jennifer

    Thank you so much for all the effort that has gone into bringing Molly and family to us – and all the techie work like this site. Would it be possible to put together a collections of calls (vocalizations) by Molly, the owlets, and Mcgee, and some guesses as to what the calls mean? The site above that has calls is interesting – but the Common Barn Owl calls seem different than the ones I’m hearing on the live stream. Perhaps an additional page on this site – “Owl Call FAQ”?

    Thank you, Carlos, for giving so many people something to look forward to every day. Watching Molly and her family has become part of my daily routine. I will miss them terribly when they leave the nest.
    Thank you to your wife and your grandson, Austin, too! By the way, I also love your commentary! :)

    Thank you Carlos and Donna for sharing these wonderful videos and your observations with these beautiful creatures.

    Here in Florida we have spotted horned owls, barn owls, and barred owls in our yard, we are just right off of a creek.

    Looking up information on owls of our area, i came across this:

    Click to access UW21600.pdf

    In one of the pictures it shows baby barn owls ranging in ages to 14 days to 4 days and a unhatched egg. Just thought this would shed more light, hopefully the egg is just a bit delayed.

    Thank you again for all that you both do.

    Most Sincerely,

    to collect the cartoons. Can someone please help.
