I like owls. We had a barred owl visiting the top of our garage all winter. He was hanging out around our birdfeeders and when the garage lights were glaring... it was dinner time. I had just one regret. He came between 10 PM and midnight. They are after all nocturnal hunters. I wish he'd make a couple of swings by around 10 in the morning. The three fat squirrels would have made quite a repast. Getting rid squirrels--- is that a bad thing? Whooosh!
