You haven’t seen many pics of these guys this year from me as most of my usual hot spots have gone cold. Thankfully, a friend has been out doing some scouting and found a few nests in different areas.
At this one, there are at least eight owlets, soon to fledge. While parked and watching them, dad decided he wanted a closer look at the photographer and landed on a post not 20 feet away.
He was quite comfortable with me, sitting for quite a while and, for the most part, ignoring me. At one point he did give me a direct look allowing this fun close up.
