I was feeling lazy tonight and almost didn't go out to say goodnight to the goats and donkeys. If I don't go out at night 4 of my chickens sleep in the goat barn and make a real mess of one of the stalls. I decided it was worth getting up off my lazy butt and putting the filthy feathered, non-egg laying, spoiled birds in their coop where they belong. I carry a little flashlight with me because my path isn't lighted. I shined the light on the step of the barn and there was a clean feathered animal. I quickly rushed back to the house to get a camera, just knowing he'd be gone before I got back. I thought he was but he had just moved over from the step to a container I store animal stuff in. It seems like there must be something wrong with a screech owl if it is this close to the ground at nighttime. I was afraid Keri would get it but I'm not sure if she saw it or not. She barked and looked that direction but didn't go after it, thank goodness. I wonder how long he'll stay out there. I hope nothing gets it.
