I was awakened by the bantams raising cain about about 1am last night. I looked out the bathroom window but, could not see anything. I did hear a "thump" and then the bantams went bezerck! I went to the back door and stood there with the lights off watching the pens. Just barely, I saw something come down from the sky and hit the side of the pen. I turned on the back lights and watched for a little while longer. Bam! There it was, lying on the ground shacking it's head and flying back into the tree.........It was an owl ! He would sit on the same limb, and every 2 min. or so, would fly down full speed and ram the side of the pen.....How stupid can ya get? Those pens are 1/2" square wire with treated 2x4's every 2 feet so they are strong! I guess he gave up because after 3 times of me seeing it myself, he finally flew off. I don't know how long he had been at this because it takes a lot to wake me! Was this not the stupidest OWL?
