Recently fledged Eastern Screech Owls
We heard a lot of racket from several birds on a recent evening. We went to investigate and spotted these 3 young screech owls perched high up in the trees with one of the parents. The parent fled upon our arrival. But these 3 just sat and stared at us, as we stared at them. Snapped this photo just as the light was fading. We’ve since spied the fledglings a couple of times around the yard at dusk. Simply adorable.
