I Went Through The Desert With An Owl With No Name

Meet our new friend. He has a deep attention span and a swiveling head.


There are high hopes for this fellow. We have an amorous woodpecker in these parts. At least that is what Capri Patt thinks. She said he is making noise to attract a girlfriend. I am pretty sure I am not his target audience.

I told you about our previous solution here. It did not work. Honey tried to get me to do it again this year, but I balked, It wasn’t effective in the first place, and in the second place, it required a vigilance on my part that I just don’t have in me.

We now have another little problem on the roof where we hear geese squawking overhead, followed by the loud thud of their landing, and then the slap, slap of their walking around. It’s unnerving I tell you! Honey did a little research and  discovered that an owl could possibly keep all of the winged things off our roof. Hence our new friend.

He will have to somehow be secured up here.

Pray for Honey.

Any ideas for a name for our new pet?

    Our owl is named Hooter. We’ve had him for many years to scare away the rabbits from our garden. I’m not sure that the rabbits in these parts even know what an owl is. But Hooter seems to be working at discouraging the birds from making a nest behind our front porch light. Yes, Hooter is presently sitting on our porch.

    Not very original but Harry Potter had an owl — his was a girl. Maybe there’s a character in the Potter books that could lend his name to your fella. Dumbledore, Weasley ??

    Owls are supposed to keep the others at bay. I hope it works for you. Right now we have a robin who keeps flying into our living room window. He sits in the tree just beside it and periodically flings himself into the glass. Good luck with your feathered friends. The geese would definitely freak me out.

    Can’t think of a name…but now I understand why I saw an owl kite hanging off of a house in my neighborhood. Have you seen these? It had big eyes on it and long streamers.
