We were very fortunate to have witnessed a pair of owls begin a relationship from the start. Was it love at first sight? Maybe not that smooth but Roy and Dale built on their relationship, bonded and started a clutch, aka. The Pioneer Gang, in June, 2011. The Pioneer Gang fledged in October and Roy and Dale started clutch number 2 in January 2012. This clutch was named The Heroes. Clutch number 3 was started in January 2013 and was named The Songbirds.
