IT’S SPRING in Minnesota, green is everywhere and in every shade,

 A baby owl fell into a window well at the back of our building, and evidently mom and dad flew in to comfort the youngster.

There is a feathery fight going on between the crows and the owls, the crows resenting the territorial takeover of the owls.  

“Add insult to injury,” the Minnesota Raptor Center is sending over an orphan owl to join the first family.  Stay tuned.
