I'm guessing this will be the final post until next season --

Pot Plant Owl


Our surviving chick fledged with its parents, and we are once again alone until next breeding season. As ever, it was special having the family here again, and wonderful that two healthy chicks spent a few weeks with us.

The recent attack and death of one of the chicks brought home how dangerous it is for these owls to nest in our built-up suburban area. They have all sorts of things to contend with - cars, electric fences, dogs, cats, rat poisons, and of course the evil human being as well (maiming and hurting owls for pleasure or superstition).

Again, I am reminded to make every opportunity count. To count ones blessings. To appreciate Life's gifts - however transient. To love unconditionally. To be respectful and mindful of Nature.

Until next time...
Namaste

Sitting now listening to Pappa hooting loudly on the balcony. The days and nights are warmer now and our jasmine is already flowering. All indications that soon we'll have PPO and family back.

Another update just now from Tracey ----


Pot Plant Owl

We've already been asked the inevitable question...will there be a cam on the owls this year? Unfortunately, there won't be. The main reason is that Telkom, our ISP, can't cope with normal bandwidth for this area. If we were to put up a cam again, we'd need a huge increase in line speed. Right now, even normal email usage is problematic. If anyone can get fibre cables put into our area, we'd be able to get cams up. But don't be disheartened... we'll post pictures and short video clips as this new season unfolds. Peace.
