Mama Owl in the House While Papa Roosts Nearby
If I knew the first thing about actually performing a back flip, I would! After many weeks of timid appearances, our beautiful, red Mama owl finally stayed at the entrance of the box long enough for me to get a shot.
She is still very cautious but it may be that the box is getting crowded with owlets and she just needs a breath of fresh air and some space!
This backyard experience has been one of the best for our family. We are so eager to see the owlets; we're like proud grandparents! I hope you don't tire of the owl posts but I just can't help it!
