Owl Hunting

Well done if you've got this far.   Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I made it to the end!! lol
    Lovely photos Bernice and what fun it is to follow the trail. It gave me a chance to see Birmingham and even you, a native, discovered new things. What I also loved is how this bought the community together. I really enjoyed doing this and it added to my stay. Thank you!

  2. Great photos, I hope they do something similar in Manchester one day!

  3. A note from Esther: I love seeing these, have seen turkeys in a little town in SC. These are a hoot! Sharing these with my granddaughter as she is much into owls! How tall are these? Thanks.


I would love you to leave me an encouraging comment. Don't forget to put your name. I love to know who is commenting. Thank you.
