    Wet, cranky and stuck in our chicken run. Thank goodness all the chicks were tucked away safe for the night in the house. We have no idea how it got in. The roof is 2x4 welded wire. I spent some time this afternoon adding more nails and zip ties.

    He does look cranky, LOL! Pretty bird, though. Glad he didnt have chicken for breakfast.

    Great pics and BEAUTIFUL bird! Owls have to be one of, if not, my most favorite species of bird. They are so amazing. Poor guy looks stressed. Good thing he didnt snack on your birds!

    Isn't he/she gorgeous? I told my husband we should keep her and name her Hedwig. Of course, I know that would be illegal/unethical... but still [​IMG]. He said we could, but then we'd have to build a whole new chicken run, if that one would be the owlry. LOL!

    He was very stressed, and we had a time helping him find the door instead of beating himself against the wire. You know how it is when a sparrow gets stuck on your screen porch? Kinda like that only bigger... and with claws.
