Suburban wildlife

While driving home from dinner this evening, I spotted an owl perched on the curb. Very exciting! From digging around online, I believe that particular type is called a barn owl. In the last year, I have seen rabbits, deer, possums, armadillos, and raccoons in this area. Neighbors have reported seeing alligators and coyotes as well. Yet another good reason to keep cats indoors.


And I thought the 3-hour delay on my flight from Houston was bad. This hurricane Katrina situation is seriously messed up. New Orleans has been devastated on a scale far worse than 9/11.


Getting chomped lately. Grrr! Mosquitoes and Mosquito Repellents: A Clinician's Guide. Good article on mosquitoes.
