Sunday Stills ~ In Honor of Ed

It's a potluck photo challenge today at Sunday Stills in honor of the photographin' truck driver...Ed at Thoughts From the Road. It was his birthday on the 18th!

Instructions are to use any of Ed's past challenges...well, I'm sure there were "birds" in there somewhere...so, knowing that these are one of Ed's favorites...may I present this year's brood of Great Horned owlets that live at the Rough String Ranch!

Happy Birthday Ed!!

You are so lucky to have your owl family closeby, and get to watch them every year. Obviously, you pass the owl good neighbor test!

I don't know if it's just me, but that rock looks like a face, and they're nesting in his mouth. Even has a beard thanks to all the bird poop. :)

How lucky you are to have such neat neighbors!
