Four AM Owl Visit

The owl continues to be a frequent late night visitor to the pond. I have now added four of the Styrofoam floats to the pond to make up for the lack of plant coverage. I suspect the owl is coming every night but the camera doesn't always get pictures. The camera has a mind of its own and seems to work when it wants to. The solar panel battery system I bought for the camera has reduced the number of times I have to change batteries but it produces no power on rainy days. In the past six weeks we have had over 12 inches of rain so we've had a bunch of rainy days. This week the prediction is for the weather to turn very cold with a high of 35 next Monday. We aren't looking forward to that. I have been looking at new cameras but haven't decided on
