Oh yummy! Beetle for breakfast! Thankfully it was for the owlets and not for me. 😉
Taken a couple of weeks ago, taking care of the six owlets at this nest was a full time job for dad and mom. They got very few breaks as they were constantly on the hunt for food to keep those little mouths fed. Here, the female returns with a tasty morsel.
The owlets have started to spread out and many have started to take their first flights, making viewing them much more difficult. It won’t be long and the family will begin their journey south for the winter.
