An early morning visitor




At about 5 am I was woken by that familiar 'thump ' of a bird flying into a window. If our dear Smokey  were still alive  ( died at age 24!) she would have been outside in a flash .



This time I found a young screech owl, only about 5"  high, looking rather stunned.  Poor wee thing.
I left him/her for about half an hour hoping he would recover, but he was still on the window ledge.
So I went to make him a bed ( or worse), a shoe box lined in old silk ties, thinking I would take him to the vet.


When I came back he was gone. I hope he is OK.

  5. I expect he was just shocked and stunned. A bed of silk ties eh? - he might well be back.

    1. I was going to give a link to the vintage tie section in my scarf shop, but thought it might be a bit crass!

    1. you might feel rather menacing if you flew into a window at 5 am. Perhaps he was waiting for a get well treat.....a mouse or bit of old steak.
