In my efforts to offer as many Zoo Animal Ambassadors as possible the opportunity to participate in shamanic ceremonies, and for me to connect with them and listen, I make unofficial visits to a few local places regularly. On a visit to Cougar Mountain Zoo I met an African Grey parrot named Max who appreciated a good story.
Meet the baby Barn Owl whose parents nested in the 100-year-old barn at Spirit Owl Ranch! The nest was really tucked in up high, so no one had been able to get a really good look at him.
Attendees had just arrived for the start of event A Walk on the Wild Side, and we discovered the owlet had moved to the side of the barn where he could easily be seen. He stayed there for the rest of the day, waiting for dark and the return of his parents with the first food of the night.
The presence of an owl in close proximity to his stall made four-year-old horse Reuger a bit nervous, but he eventually settled down.
As night fell I staked out a nearby spot hoping to witness the arrival of the parents, but they told me in no uncertain terms (screeching at me) that it was private family time. I did at least get to see the moon rise behind the barn.
The following morning, the owlet was back in the nest. So glad to have seen him.
The baby owl is a baby no more. Latest news is he has fledged, and now sleeps in the trees behind the barn, hunting the fields of Spirit Owl Ranch at night. Apparently the parents leave the best territory to the young until they mature. The parents will most likely return to the same nest site during breeding season next year, and the young owl will claim territory of his own elsewhere.
Want to meet the Animal and Wildlife Ambassadors in person, and in ceremony?
Registration is now open for:
A Walk on the Wild Side, October 5-6, 2019 at Spirit Owl Ranch
The intention of the weekend is to break down barriers and build bridges of unity and connection, facilitating healing for all participants, both two- and four-legged.
The result? Increased awareness, connection, communication with all species, and release from limiting patterns and lifelong negative beliefs.
A powerful opportunity for deep personal healing as well as global transformation!
“The excitement of trees and messages through root systems, the breath of horses and spiritual equine energy, the dawn of the morning and prayers for the day, the cool evenings with owls, bats and bird—all fed my soul. I returned home a new and different woman, never to look back, but always forging forward with a newfound energy of spirit.”—attendee Destiny Sargeant, AK
