    This morning at about 5am I woke to an animal sound...If was very close (like near the coop). The best way to describe the sound was a sort of "treat treat treat" sound. I got the flashlight and didn't see anything, then turn on the flood lights..nothing. Well at the point the dog was out and running around! I left the flood light on (so I could clearly see the coop) till the sun came up. My only guess is an owl...does that even seem right? Any help please......[​IMG]
