And then there were two

It is with great sadness that I share with you that one of the triplets was hit by a car last night at Queens and Bromley and was killed.  It is the plight of urban owls. When they go after prey, they have tunnel vision and see nothing but their target. I wrapped the owl up and buried it. When you see them close up, they are such magnificent creatures. I know it's just an owl but it doesn't lessen the sadness of loss.  The remaining owls are still at Edgehill Park. The last two nights they have started out there and then around 11 p.m. end up at our house in search of food. One still cries like a baby owlet but the other one can now hoot a little. Drive slow.  On Monday, the Charlotte Observer will do a story on Dr. Rob which will in part, feature Ned and Nellie so watch for that.
The greatness of a Nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Mahatma Gandhi
