Wednesday, 4-9-08 - North Woods Eastern Screech-Owls
I've been away for almost a week. I've come back to what may be the first signs of a nestling. But I can't be sure. Both adult owls were out, but I only have photographs of one leaving the cavity. Are the fuzzy blobs, nestlings or an adult paying a visit to the nest? I can't be sure.
One of the owls made lots of calls this evening, but they didn't seem to be directed at the owls mate. Could they be calls for the nestlings to start exploring the outside world?
