J and I have been really into owls lately. We started our interest in owls by reading some of the Guardians of Ga'hoole book series. We watched the movie (disappointing - it didn't really follow the books at all). We attended a Raptor, Inc. presentation with live owls - they even had a barn owl, he was beautiful. We learned that there are only maybe 50 pairs of barn owls in all of Ohio.
We studied a few books about owls and owl breeds. Overall, we definitely expanded our interests to include owls. J is even thinking about volunteering with Raptor, Inc. when he is old enough. Fun times.
