Barred Owl Baby

The monthly Mead Garden bird count turned up fewer birds than expected. However, there is a new addition to the Garden. A new Barred Owl!

Mamma was sitting close to her chick but they were both in a tree easily seen by anyone who cared to just look up.

In fact, on the way back to the parking lot later, I noticed a family enjoying a picnic right under the tree where the owls were resting. I pointed up and the kids were thrilled.

Spring is in full gear!
