Saturday morning, I stopped by my friends’ home to check out on how the owlets were doing. From my visit a couple of weeks ago, I knew that there are two, but could only see one.
It wasn’t until I got into the darkroom that I spotted the second one! They are definitely getting bigger. They are moving out of the nest to get a little exercise now.
They are doing quite well. Julie popped came out and we chatted a bit. We could he the mother calling to the chicks with a low and quiet hoot, but we couldn’t see her. Then she flew out and landed in another white pine, right in the sun.
She’s looking a little sleepy at 7:00 in the morning after being out hunting all night long.
