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.

Baby owlet goes boom. Climbs up tree to get back.
A rambunctious baby barred owl fell out of his tree. He cannot fly yet but has well developed talons. Mama gives him two hoots to say "Get your behind back up in that tree before some low life canine or feline starts messing with you." It takes him a while but he makes it. Apparently, this is a rare occurrence and some people don't believe that owls climb trees. For those people, here is your sign.
