Our Owl, Part 2

Well, if you have been reading our blog from the beginning you will remember that we have an owl that lives in the trees around our house. We find him very interesting, but when we found that he had killed one of the wild bunnies that live around us we were not really happy. We also assumed that he was the reason we had not seen any of the little chipmunks roaming around our back yard this spring.

So the other day Mark found the remains of an opposum in the back yard. We are more than happy for the owl to eat animals like this. When Mark shoveled it up to bury it he realized that it was just the skin of the end part of the possum.

We assumed that the owl ate everything else and left that part. Then we found this gross ball of stuff on the deck; which if you watch Dirty Jobs you might know what it is.

If you dont watch this show then you can go to this link and find out what the mysterious object is. (Or if you are like me and just want to watch Mike Rowe in action you can watch too.)

Wow, that is disgusting. I like Dirty Jobs, but I've never seen that episode.

Gross, but interesting!

Let's all just sit back and watch Mike Rowe. Ahhhhhh..... :)

Hi Tara, very interesting post! As Allison commented, gross, but nonteheless interesting! Haha.

I noticed you're a fan of Dirty Jobs (and Mike Rowe). I want to give you a heads up on the upcoming special... he's going to follow the quest for the mysterious Greenland Shark. It's part of Shark Week 2008 and will air on Tuesday, July 29th, at 9PM. If you'd like more info I'd be happy to share... I work with Discovery and have the inside scoop.

By the way, I hope you don't mind me reaching out to you like this... I figure you'd be interested since you like the show. Feel free to contact me back, and have a great "owl vomit-free" day!
