Ellis Bird Farm Blog
Yesterday morning, we feared that tragedy had befallen Ellie and Albert when a security guard checking the EBF site contacted us to report that he had found a dead owl just inside the main gate. It had apparently been struck by a vehicle. Worried that it was Albert, one of our chat moderators watched the webcams carefully all night to see if Ellie had been widowed. Thankfully, he appeared at 6:45 this morning with a mouse for Ellie! It is a mystery why there was another owl in the vicinity but we are relieved to know that all is well with our beloved owls. We would like to say a special thank you to Cat and Kathleen for watching the webcams and documenting the activities at this nest.
