Good deed helps owls

By Michel Northsea

Country Club Estates resident Jim Van Gilder knows how to talk to owls.
It’s a talent he mastered when he found their nest on the ground near his home in April.
Wanting the best outcome for the young birds still in the nest, he contacted an owl rescue group and they suggested he build a platform and move the nest to the platform.
So Van Gilder went to work and quickly built a 12-foot-high platform to accommodate the nest.
The theory was that the mother of the young great horned owls would find her offspring and resume caring for them.
