Great Horned Owls: A tale of survival in southwestern Kansas
Years ago the resident architect joined up with the family environmental engineer to create a very special abode. They spent the weekend fashioning a nesting platform for great horned owls, in hopes of providing the perfect honeymoon cottage for the pair that spent the previous year in the shelterbelt. Ollie and Big Owlberta moved in and set up house. Their struggle to survive in this sometimes brutal land has taken the architect and the engineer on a rollercoaster ride of joy, grief, and worry.
