It’s all about the wings…

Nearing the end of their stay in our box, the owlets are climbing with great care to the top.

or flying into the night.

I am reminded of a quote given to each of our adult children with a copy of the family history:

‘Every child deserves two things:  one is roots, the other is wings.’

We have provided roots – a barn owl box made of 100 year old barn wood – and their parents have given them wings – literally and figuratively!   God speed little ones!
