This is the momma owl watching closely over her owlet.
I was so excited today to see this little owlet up close and personal after I noticed his mother in an oak tree. She was calling to him and I took a look around and found him sitting on a low branch. He seemed fine so I was happy(-: I am very happy to know that they were so close to me this whole time and I never saw them. They were nesting in a few trees over from the pine tree where they were last year. I have been looking for them but have not found their nest until now(-: I see and hear them every night though. I actually thought they were nesting out of my area. So funny how sneaky they are.
