    Now on the other hand unprotected are free game at my house. All they have to do is look at the chickens funny.

    amazing! Is this a great horned owl? We have bald eagles and owls where i live but they are mostly occupied by the lake across the street. Thanks for sharing these great pics.

    I've got PaPa out side my window every night just waiting for someone not inside, I still free range without a problem, my owls have been outside my windows for the last 4+ years, yes I've lost birds but its mostly been my fault, not always, but a cage to close to the ground, portable pen with out a screen that blurs the out line of the birds when they sleep accidentally closing a door before all my birds are in. I've learned no birds lost this year YA YA WOO HOO and he's still out side my window with his family
