« Fourth Owl, April 30th | Main | Wednesday, May 2nd »

Monday, April 30th

I was the only regular. The three owls were tucked into the center of the Willow this evening, a safe resting place given the high winds.

At fly out they stayed close to the Willow, first in low trees and then in the protection of a small tree due east from the Willow.

No songs tonight, but the parents continued to ignore the fledgling and do their head rubbing.  I wonder if this is part of the natal dispersal process, a clue that they might start a second brood--given the loss of their three other fledglings, or just normal behavior.
