~ Momma Owl's Perspective ~
Every nest ought to have a view. Mine does. So does the hollow of this Mexican Blue Oak tree, scarred, scoured and burned out by lightning. Lightning storms in the desert are fearful events. I've watched a lightning strike devastate a hundred-year-old saguaro, leaving the green living cactus a burning stump.
The western screech owl knows nothing of the devastation that formed her protective home. It's cool and dry in the hollow, and her babies will be secure in the darkness of the nest. Life goes on.
