Thousands Watch As Owlets Hatch In Calif. Yard
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Some owls have joined pussycats as stars of the Internet. Molly and McGee settled in a little owl house - a couple near San Diego outfitted with a Web cam and perched high up on a pole. Over the last few days, fans were riveted as four owlets hatched. One viewer wrote: Molly and McGee plus four is the most addictive reality show. Generally it's pretty boring, though once in a while McGee screeches in with his prey - dead mice and gophers.
It's MORNING EDITION.
