We Have A New Resident

I’m not sure if I’m suppose to be happy or not about this, but we have a VERY large Great Horned Owl residing in one of our big Pine Trees just outside of the dining room window.

Our new resident, a Great Horned Owl

He or she has been “sleeping” here for the past week.  He/She arrives about 7 AM and leaves to go hunting at about 630 PM.  Sometimes, He/She comes back to rest in the evening and boy, what a set of lungs.  LOUD  hooting going on out there.  I don’t see any nesting activity going on, so maybe our place is just a crash pad.  All of the other birds have taken off except for the Hummingbirds, they’ve been dive-bombing the poor guy, but he/she doesn’t seem to care.  I kinda hope our owl sticks around.

    There is a food a water source in your area.
    since the fisherman built our water feature we have all kinds of visitors.
    Lots of doves, a family of ducks even a few hawks stick around all year.

      I read a bit more Great Horned Owls and it seems as though this is a GUY and last night he was courting a gal. Wouldn’t it be WAY COOL if they set up shop and build a nest in our yard? Fingers crossed.

      Oh, and I meant to say, we have oodles of hawks, not really sure what kind they are. We have a rather large wash near our home with all kinds of tasty bits for the raptors. Not too sure where they find water in the desert though. Thanks for stoppin’ by Grace 🙂
