Awhile ago we came home to find a baby owlet had fallen out of the tree right by the kiddos play set. They loved watching the owlet and seeing what it would do next. A couple days a later a second one fell. The next day they were both strong enough and flew back to their nests. Was pretty cool. The kids loved just watching them. The only hard part was keeping the dog away and we had to keep the cats in the house for the week they were there as well trying to protect them at least from our animals.
I did take the oppurtunity to teach Madison about owls, especially since we had the littles there to look at and plenty of owl pellets as well.:)
