    So here is a grainy photo taken off security cam footage of an unwanted owl that has visited my pond several times over the past yrs. On the footage the owl made several unsuccessful lunges at the fish.

    Tell him to fly east, I will solve your problem. The owl can live here :)

    Very cool to have an owl ! Ii would suggest netting your pond, which should be easily accomplished with your pond design.

    I agree with robamy, I'd sacrifice a few fish here and there to have a owl hanging out

    Yeah I loss a beautiful rescue fish years back, probably a white butterfly koi never saw whiskers, but it was large pure white beautiful. Before I netted the pond and back when I ran lights at night. It was gone over night.

    Turned off the lights and then the heron started coming by so I netted to keep the heron away.
