Every Monday night when he is part of a three-man team (one of many taking part) playing a game called Bricket. It's a cross between bowls and cricket. Men, women and children play. It's informal and it's a whole lot of fun. I don't play as I prefer to sit on the banks with several local ladies who point out people to me or introduce me when they come over to greet my companions.
Play starts at 6pm and normally finishes at 8pm. There's a light meal (hamburger and chips/prego rolls and salad) on sale afterwards but we never stay. This is a real late night for us already!
This week as we turned off the main farm road leading to our entrance, our pick-up truck's headlights picked up a bird on the bank. Not just any bird; an owl and owls are our favorite birds.
Grant stopped the car and while his headlights shone on the owl, I managed three not-so-good photos. But we wanted a record of the owl we hear at night in the garden and also that we'd seen it now while driving home!
The Spotted Eagle-owl is a common resident and most common "large eared" owl in the region. The call is a mellow two and three syllable hoot: hu-whooooo or who-are-you.

HAPPY WEDNESDAY TO YOU ALL!
