A great horned owl now lives in the Harrison store's garden center, looking down on surprised customers shopping for flowers and paving stones.
I always like to see businesses accommodate wildlife. I hate it when development comes through and destroys the wildlife habitat. There were owls near my house but too much development has chased them off. I miss the meadowlarks too.
Rusty Scarborough, the education program coordinator at Delta Rivers Nature Center in Pine Bluff, said the Home Depot would be a good spot for an owl. Rodents are the predominant food source for a great horned owl and stores with garden centers stock bird seed and crop seeds — big draws for rodents.
