Hadden’ s haven
The barred owl came to visit again!
Our pal the barred owl was back yesterday afternoon, making himself (herself?) very comfortable on the top of our feeder stand for a good two hours. He seemed to be most interested in the goings on right below the feeder, no doubt waiting for a juicy mouse or other rodent to make its appearance. At times it looked like he was napping. Interestingly, none of the little birds seemed to mind too much that he was there, as the chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, and even cardinals happily munched at our other feeders just a few feet away from the owl.

We love owls here at Patten Hill Farm. About two summers ago they nested in a tree near the house and rid our yard of the abundant squirrels we had around here, very few rodents remain including mice, just two of them this winter
Owls are a blessing !
We know they are in the area as rehear their call often “who cooks for you”
I hope you answer, “The Penny’s”
