She was so calm because she was a little dingy from her fall that you could pick her up and pet her and she would just look at you with the cutest, sweetest big eyes ever! She didn't even try to fly or flap her wings so I am concerned she is hurt from the fall.There was 3 eggs in her nest and only one didn't break during the fall. I had the tree trimmers remove her nest and part of the trunk before they put the trunk into the chipper machine! I carefully put it all in a box along with Mrs Owl and cut out a hole on the side of box. I put the box out in my garden. Hopefully Mrs Owl doesn't smell the hands of the trim trimmers that picked up her egg and she likes where she has been relocated! I will check on her later to make sure she is OK.Be sure to visit Susan at Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday!

A "Hoot" of a Story - Outdoor Wednesday
Today we had the tree trimmers come to cut up some trees. We have recently purchased a 3 acre Avocado Grove next door to our 3 acre property. It was a bank repo, and it has been vacant for 2 years. The place is a mess! We are trying to fix up the little farm house to rent out and nurse the avocado and fruit trees back to health, so we had to call tree trimmers to help us cut off all the dead branches.
The first tree they cut down was a huge dead Palm tree about 25 feet tall. When it fell and hit the ground this is what fell out of a hole in the trunk with a broken egg attached to it's little bottom! Look at her eyes, they are still crossed from getting her bell rang during the fall!
