Barn Owls

 

The barn owls guard their nest in light of day.
At night, they fly and search the woods for prey.
The baby barn owls stay inside the nest
Too young to go, to give a hoot or cry.
They trust the parent owls to do their best
when they take off into the starry sky.
At night, they fly and search the woods for prey.
The barn owls guard their nest in light of day.

    • WordPress is providing pictures now for blogs. I was happy to find images of the baby barn owls. But I plan to continue using my own photos, too, Wouldn’t you love to see these little owls in real life?
