“Here at the Pacific Lake Owl Sanctuary we have several hundred different types of owls. Our owls come from all over the country, even from around the world! Aren’t they beautiful?”
Tommy held on to his mother’s hand tightly. “How come you have so many different colored owls here? I see green ones, and red ones, and even orange ones!”
His mother smiled. “The tour guide just told us they come from all over the world. It’s just the beauty of nature.”
Or, thought the tour guide, it’s Andy and me in the vet’s office, coloring the birds with sharpies.
