An Owl

Three weeks ago, the City of Austin cleared out some of the dead trees and underbrush directly behind the house.  That also cleared out a substantial area surrounding the two giant live oaks behind us and created a perfect space to hang the owl house.

I’ve had this owl house for five-or-six years, but apparently didn’t have the right conditions in the yard proper to entice any residents.  So I installed it in the newly cleared area.

Low and behold, we have an owl!  This is the best picture I can manage since it won’t let me get too close.  Maybe after some trust is gained, I can capture something less grainy.
