Wordless Wednesday: The Farm Owls

Our farmyard and neighborhood has never been short of owls.

These 4 guys were perched here on my drive home one night.
Right after I snapped this they all flew away, very cool sight.

Sitting pretty on the wheel line

You can spot the owl on the far right branch.

When I told my parents about the owls, my mom reminded me how the owls came to our area. My grandpa decided we needed some good mice control, so he built owl nests in our trees and haysheds. This was over 30 years ago, and the owls have stuck around.

Pretty cool example of farmers working with and preserving wildlife.

Happy Wednesday.
