Western Screech Owls had 3 babes last spring

Year 5 of mated couple living in 2 separate nest boxes in close proximity on my private back yard. Last spring they birthed 3 babes, pictured in my TX Ebony protective tree while fledged and learning to fly/hunt. This year the mother is currently sitting on eggs in her box. I’ve only seen the father napping in the window of his own condo. Blessed with these darlings.
