LAFOURCHE PARISH – For the past 6 weeks, a Great Horned Owl and her two owlets have been the talk of a Lockport, Louisiana neighborhood.
“We were lucky enough to have a momma owl lay some eggs up in our tree and we’ve been watching them grow,” said Daniel, the homeowner.
But in a blink of an eye, their home, an old crows nest, came crashing down… .
“We were sitting down inside and my wife is a photographer. She noticed one of the babies was on the ground. I said, wow! What do we do?”
A wildlife rescue expert coached them through the rescue.
“They told us to put it in a box in the tree or a make shift nest,” said Daniel.
It’s Daniel’s 50th birthday.
“One of my top 10 birthday present for sure. You only turn 50 once. It`s pretty amazing,” said Daniel.
And it’s a happy birthday for him, both owlets are safe.
