A Sense of Scale
Big Owl (on the left behind leaves), Fat Owl and Mama Owl together in the late afternoon.
Five eyed mad dogs for the paparazzo.
Big Owl: "Stupid Paparazzo!" Fat owl: "There goes mama." (little owl was still in the hole)
Little Owl Goes Solo
Little Owl finally got out of the hole, and while the other two were off exploring nearby cottonwoods, Little Owl was entertaining himself on the branch above the hole.
Mama Owl Goes Solo
Last night Mama Owl was watching Little Owl from a low branch on a cottonwood on the east side of the irrigation ditch. We were between her and Little Owl, and she gave us a little show.
Owlets in Different Trees
Last night, Big Owl was in a cottonwood south of the tree they grew up in. Little Owl was in the original tree where Mama Owl could see him. It turns out Fat Owl was in the tree with Little Owl, but he was so covered up by the leaves and branches, I could not get a photo of him.
A new tree
