And then back to the important activity of the moment-making eggs.

Next an update from Jane of Georgia about the residents of her Owl House, Oscar, the red phase Screech and Olivia, the gray Screech.

I just returned home from five days in Florida. It’s well into the time of day that Oscar would be visible, but he is nowhere to be seen. I have, however, seen Olivia poke her eyes and “ears” just up to doorway level for a quick peek outside. Once she notices me on the deck, she darts back down. I’m wondering if there are eggs/hatchlings and if Oscar has flown the coop for the time being, only to return to bring food. I’ll keep an “eagle eye” out for him and let you know as things progress further/


Nevermind -- Oscar just poked his head out of the box!

He must have been taking a late afternoon nap!


More on Ginger's presence in Pale Male's territory, and reader's responses coming soon.

Happy Hawking!
