Poop Or Petals?

A good laugh overcomes more difficulties and dissipates more dark clouds than any other one thing. Laura Ingalls Wilder, author

It’s the start of the 2020 burrowing owl nesting season on Marco Island, Florida. It’s the time of year the male owls are busy decorating their burrow entrances to attract their lifetime mates. 

According to an article by Maria Lamb in the Coastal Breeze, “The male owl goes nuts in their decoration choices. Some male owls prefer grass clippings while others prefer bright colored flowers, but their absolute favorite is dried up dog poop. Owls living on ranches display similar preferences for cow poop.” Who knew?

Just a little levity in these “heavy” times.

Affirmation: Humor is all around us.

Coaching question: If you were a female owl what would you prefer??

  1. I love this! We are watching a great horned owl and baby still in the nest. Last year when we saw it there was a tuft of red as well as owls. We said it must be a rabbit. My 3 year old said in dismay, “Owls eat rabbits?!” It was a humorous moment as she began to learn of the circle of life!
