how cute is that?

When the Ponder children were young their grandmother worked as a bird of prey wrangler for a wildlife museum in Oregon. The kids always got to be her worthy helpers. We learned a lot about owls, hawks, eagles and the like. Best part - pulling apart owl pellets and putting together the resulting mouse skeletons.
Story about this owlet here.
