    1. In the summer we’ve had an owl in one of the trees out back hooting at night but, I’ve never been able to find it. I like to think it’s one of family members from the owlets I’ve seen by the river coming over after the owlets have fledged.

    1. It IS an amazing find! They seem to have such terrific camouflage that a less discerning eye might not have caught them!

      I hope we get to see more photos of them as they grow up?

    1. Thank you so much, Gordon! I’ve gone back several times since spying the Adult Female in the nest back in late March but, never could see them or the adult until yesterday when I finally got to see the two owlets outside the nest!
      Is there still an owl nesting in GGP where we saw them before?

      1. I don’t think the owls are at the same tree in GGP; they pruned the tree and there’s construction going on enlarging the lake where the owls owls flew to hide. They might be elsewhere in GGP. Sadly, I stayed away since reading all the bad news of photographers behind assaulted and robbed of their gear.

  1. This is exactly the owlets in the classic children’s book, Owl Babies! Sarah and Percy are there, and Bill must be close by on a branch of ivy. Terrific, Deborah!

    1. Thank you, Dan! I was happy they were out today. I’ve been by their nest 3 times in the last 3 weeks hoping to see them, but kept missing(they were hunkered down) them until today. It’s sunny out today so they decided to get some I guess.
