READ MORE: “Do Not Touch” is a good rule. Some people found barn owlets alone in a nest near Brownsville, Texas. They did not know: Mama was off hunting. They took the owlets to the Gladys Porter Zoo. The owls now can live in the wild. Their tags will help vets keep track of them. The zoo’s vet says, “If you find a nest with barn owl chicks, leave it alone.” Proverbs 27:8 says, “Like a bird that strays from its nest is a man who strays from his home.”
