Birds

Fledgling!

We took our first dog walk of the spring this week. We looked for the owls in February and didn’t see them. By the time we returned to the nest, the owlets were fledging and ready to fly! We only spotted one at the nest; Mom was in a nearby tree keeping an eye on everyone.

The setting sun catches the owlet just right!

Sorry for the cell phone pictures, here, but my good camera needed the batteries recharged (oops!).

    • They are a neighborhood icon, returning to the same nest every year on a walking trail that is well-traveled. They seem to thrive on the attention!
