We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Retriever got some great shots of baby Great Horned Owls yesterday, in a nest about 25' above the ground in New England. Great Horned Owls nest early, laying their eggs while the snow flies. These babies are probably raised on delicious rats and crows, and the occasional squirrel, skunk, and house cat for variety.
The nest itself is probably a renovated crow or squirrel nest, since Great Horned Owls do not build nests themselves, as far as I know. Most likely squirrel, with all of the leaves in it.
