Of Barn Swallows And Owl…

Mary and I are both early risers, usually ready to start our daily Internet activities about 6:00 AM. Problem…the Family Lodge of Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Connor, WA and where the WiFi signal is located does not open until 8:00 AM. Fortunately under the covered patio of the Family Lodge are four picnic tables where we can plug into electricity and do our computer work starting at 6:00AM.

The very first morning we noticed a whole bunch of Barn Swallows flying in and out of the patio area. Ah ha, we also noticed several nests of the birds. Like this one…

Just one of several nests the Barn Swallows have made under the roof of the Family Lodge Patio.

Then over in the corner Mary noticed this Owl dummy that is supposed to scare away the Barn Swallows. He just was not being very effective. An Owl just cannot get any respect these days! Study the below photo carefully and it will provide you with a nice chuckle.

Hey! Get off of my head! You’re supposed to be afraid of me! Boo! I mean Hoot! Scat! I didn’t mean for you to scat on my head!

On another note, today is moving day and we will transit our motorhome to Thousand Trails RV Resort in Birch Bay, WA about 50 miles North of our current location for a one week stay.
