Molly the Barn Owl and Babies...Still Watching

I have to admit I am still addicted to watching owls on the internet. There is something so wondrous to me, to see the babies hatch and their Mama, Molly taking such good care of them. This is her second brood this year, which I hear is the limit for barn owls.

Recently, one of the babies passed away. It was hard thinking about it, but often, nature has its sadness along with its happiness. So I've got my fingers crossed that the remaining three thrive and are able to fledge.

So if you haven't had a chance to watch them grow, tune in to your internet Owl channel right here and watch a little. If they're snoozing, come back later. The babies look a little like fluffy pteradactyls right now, but they grow into downright gorgeous little barn owls. Whose coloring will eventually tell us if they are male or female.

And of course they have provided me with lots of Molly Owl bead inspiration. You can check out my Etsy shop here, and see if there are any currently in stock. They tend to go quickly.

Hope your day is full of wondrous inspiration too. We all have a lot to be thankful for.
