Ned and Nellie are a pair of barred owls that have lived in the Myers Park neighborhood of Charlotte, NC. since 2009. I chronicle their escapades to raise awareness of these beautiful raptors.

Owl board on Pinterest
For those of you who do Pinterest, I have an owl board that features more photos and some neat (in my small mind) owl things. It's under Marsha Gaspari. And for this year, we are going to try to get Nellie back to her real home (in our yard) by putting chicken wire in the tree cavity where she nested last year. I have Rob's owl call on my ipod and the mouse platform and I am waiting to catch some mice to see if I can train Nellie to come to me (but not too much that she gets dependent-just cocktail entertainment). This is one of Nellie's babies who has been rousing so she looks a little "undone" but it was hot that day.
