The Feeder Feed: Strigine Edition

I have written of owls before.  I once shared a winter encounter I had with a Great Gray, seared into my mind’s eye.  I also shared photos of the old “Owl Room”, the guest room, at the legendary Sabine Farm with its exquisite lamps.  I guess that would have been the Strigine Sabine Room.

No, No! I saw them first!

And to think, that’s just one of them and only one aspect of the owliness of that room.

Striginicity?

Here is an amusing and yet informative video about owls.

Look… without my old feeders I have to be creative if I am going to keep this tag alive!

And, yes, the snooty adjective for owly is strigine.

    . . . as long is it’s not the detested spotted owl. Those things are being used as political footballs to shutdown entire communities and local economies in the PNW.
