    One morning I went out to the pond swing to find a couple blobs of owl poo to clean up. So my dad brought over his trail cam and set it up, aiming it at the top of our swing. Lo and behold! The pooper was caught on camera! I imagine it is hunting frogs and toads that gather near our pond lights at night.

    An owl visit, that's great even if they like fish. If you have a net up, hopefully no worries. I would love if an owl came to my garden.

    I hear them sometimes but never see them. The sounds they make are soothing at night!
