Rain, Sweet Rain!

It's been a long time since we've had any meaningful rain.  But starting last night we've had a nice downpour (and it's still raining.)  We even have PUDDLES in the yard!  Hallelujah!

It hasn't rained much since Alice has had her new outdoor patio.  I rearranged the perches in the patio so her tall perch is on the east side and Alice is in full sight through the window in the door at the end of the hallway.  This morning when I got up while it was still raining, this picture is what I saw at the end of the hall: one owl thoroughly enjoying sitting in the rain.

It's important that captive birds have choices.  You never know when they want to be in the rain, out of the rain, in the heat or cold, in the climate controlled house, or whatever.

Iris chose to stay out of the rain, as did Rusty until early this morning.  Just like people, not everyone wants the same thing at the same time in life.
