book of the week: wesley the owl
wesley the owl is a fascinating book! half the time i thought the author/scientist was insane for keeping and raising a barn owl for 19 years. she had to kill at least 6 mice per day to feed him, could only sleep a few hours at a time, and deal with him having sex with her arm?! are you kidding me?!
the other half of the time reading this book i’d be enthralled with the author’s insights into owl behavior, made possible only by living and being intimately involved with one for 19 years.
