Well the owlet that was separated in another tree decided to try to make a flight over to be with his siblings. He didn't make it and landed in the grass. I decided to help him out.
Cutest little critter I have ever seen(-:
It was so amazing to be able to hold him(-:
What a sweet little bird(-: Their feathers are so soft and thick(-: Very strong feet!
Happy to be getting a lift up to a branch(-:
Goodnight Owlet...see you in the morning!(-:
Yay, he made it up the tree. He is the one on the left. Now they are all together...for now(-: The mom was in the three to the left when I got there. I bet she is having a great mothers day...those little owlets eat a lot of mice a day! On one site it says 13-17 per owlet between the age of 3-4 weeks! An adult owl eats about 4 mice per day. Hungry little critters! Nice that they are here and cleaning up the mice population(-:
