Chow time for Burrowing Owl owlets

A couple of very busy parents here with five little ones to take care of. I spent hours watching them this past Wednesday and had an absolute blast.

Mom hung out close to the nest, keeping close watch on the owlets. Dad opted to hang out about 20 yards away for the most part but was far from disconnected. In fact, three times he brought home meals for the family. A good breakfast for the crew, not a good day for the mice. 😉

Here, mom had just taken the latest catch from the dad and was getting ready to take it to the kiddos.
