Camp fires and barn owls...

We got around to putting some old bricks in a circle for a fire ring last night.  So we  gathered up some wood and got ourselves a little fire going.

It was nice. The weather yesterday was much cooler than it had been, so the fire felt good. We sat there till dark enjoying the fire.

After awhile, we heard some owls off in the distance. You'd hear one of them screech, then the other would make a sharp staccato chirping noise. Well soon they were flying right over head. You could just make out their white underbellies and wings in the darkness. Silently flapping their way about.

Sreeeeeeech then chirp chirp chirp chirp.

I don't know if they were mating or fighting or what, but it was neat to watch.
