Introducing Mystic the Barn Owl

This coming week, we will be adding to our falconry family with an 8-week old Barn Owl (Tyto alba).  We are very excited to have ‘Mystic’ join our family and grow in the great sport of falconry.

Aurora, Snowy Owl

Aurora, Snowy Owl

I knew from the moment I first saw her that she was going to break my heart. It wasn’t going to be deliberate or purposeful but I knew it was going to happen. And so the time has come for me to say goodbye to an enchanting princess from the snowy wilderness of the arctic tundra. She spent six whole months with me and my family despite all of the kind efforts and training of falconry, she would not adapt to the life of falconry,  nor could I retrain her from the wilderness that she had known all of her life. It was the most difficult falconry decision I’ve had to make, but it was for the best. She has moved on to the next chapter in her life and I hope she will do good things in her next adventures. Good Luck, enchanting white princess.

Great Horned Owl Brancher

Great Horned Owl Brancher

This not-so-little guy was watching my brother as he walked along the wooded path in his backyard.  This is a Great Horned Owl brancher, who appears with a small bit of down and probably fledged the next just a day or two ago.  No Doubt, the parent birds will be looking for him for his feeding time.  Nature sure is wonderful sometimes!

It’s always great to see when the local wildlife takes up refuge in one of the Owl Boxes that I built.  This little guy was sitting up in the house this past week  up at the Cabin.  Looking forward to seeing him again in for our annual fall bird hunt!
