Way back when we first started this little adventure, there was an owl living in the owl house attached to an oak tree adjacent to the kitchen.
Today, we spotted an owl ensconced at the edge of one of the exhaust ducts on the second floor above the kitchen and master bedroom. The ducts are still open; they have not yet been capped.
Ron said he would research how to encourage the owl to leave what we hope is not a nest, without harming the owl. He also plans to remove and replace the duct, on the presumption that the owl does what all living organisms do — purge waste.
