Alice started in on some goofy begging type calls that turned into "wac, wac!" calls at 1:30 AM. It's one of her ways of getting attention, and she pretty much just does it as we get into mating season. I dragged my butt out of bed and hooted with her a few minutes before crawling back into bed. That seemed to appease her somewhat.

I'm up in the wee hours this morning....I'm off to visit Kay McKeever (the Owl Lady of Canada) at the Owl Foundation in Vineland, Ontario. I hope I get some new insights into owl behavior while I'm there. We'll see how Alice takes my 3 night absence...she's never had to deal with that before. My poor husband will bear the brunt of things as he's staying home to take care of her.
