  • 152

A approached at night, but mama owl was ready to protect her young owlets.

Watch this incredible footage of Dottie the female defending her nest against a snake that attempted to enter the nest box!

After all the drama the fourth owlet hatched yesterday, May 7.

The owlet is very small and the age gap is great between it and its oldest sibling.

There is the possibility that the little one may not survive.

Motherhood will always trump evil! Good for her to defend her babies!

Couldn’t see the snake–which shows her success.
