We have a new friend! Owl comes at night to hunt the ratties in our yard.
Ojo isn't so sure about this, because SHE likes to hunt the ratties. She bark-bark-bark-bark-barks at Owl when he is perched looking at our Yard. But this doesn't bother Owl. Owl just waits, patiently.
We have been hearing Owl for a while now, since way back before Christmas, because he screeches when he hunts! Us Dogs, of course, have been seeing Owl for a long time too. And Ojo has been bark-bark-barking at him. But this is the first time the people saw Owl, and they were very excited!
Our friend is called a Barred Owl. Isn't he pretty?
(He did not like the lights the people shone on him. They were very offensive to his eyes and his ability to hunt, so he left quite soon after this. But I am sure he'll be back!)
