Barn Owl

World famous Barn Owls - Molly and McGee

Story about one time Arvin and Lamont residents.

My brother Carlos and his wife Donna have set up a web cam in an Owl Box and it streams live 24-7 on Ustream. I thought this might make a good story as Carlos and Donna both graduated from Arvin High School in 1960. They now live in San Marcos, CA. The owls have been named Molly and McGee. Molly is sitting on 5 eggs and they should start hatching anytime now. What makes this news worthy is that Carlos is going into classrooms via Ustream across the country without ever leaving San Marcos and teaching children about the owls. He has had several sessions with a fifth grade class in Milford Ohio and one session with a class in Texas. The last session with the class in Milford the audience could see Carlos and hear the question from the students in Ohio. He is planning more classroom sessions in the future.
