Baby Barred Owls

I had been checking the Barred Owl nest tree for the past week without success. I was beginning to worry if there were any babies this year or if I missed them leaving. As I was loading the van in the morning I heard a familiar sound. The call of a baby Barred Owl! I tracked it down and was able to get a view of one of the fledgling owls.

Seems I was looking in the wrong place for several days.

A little later in the day I was able to get a shot in better light.

I did track down two fledglings so that is par for the past few years. How long will these kids hang around? Stay tuned.
