A Visitor and a Suprise




A noisy bunch of crows harassing  something in a tall tree very near our house led to the discovery of this Barred Owl.  All the fuss the crows made didn't seem to have much effect on him and we all got to look at him as long as we liked.  We looked for him this morning but he must have chosen a quieter spot for today's nap.





Now this sweet little girl is no visitor. She's my new bunny and she's kind of shy just yet.  Like several other of our adopted pets, she was found at my son's complex. Seems people get tired of their pets and release them to fend for themselves.
Oh yes, her name is going to be Cinnamon,  short for Cinnamon Bun ( she's actually a lot more brown than she looks on the photos).




Hopefully very soon she'll be more relaxed and feel at home in her hutch ( which my DH got done lickety-split).

Thanks for coming by today. And thanks to all who left condolences on my previous post.

    How sad to think of people releasing their pets to fend for themselves. Bless you and your hubby for taking Cinnamon in and caring for her. She is adorable!

  5. I'm always thrilled when we come across a perched owl in the daytime! We hear quite a few who-whoing in the evening around here. A little rabbit, how cute! I think you had a pigeon too? My sympathy re your brother-in-law. I too like the frayed rope quote.

  9. Wow, you got some amazing shots of the owl! And Cinnamon looks just as sweet as can be. Let's hope the new hutch is owl-proof.
