We are far from done with winter weather here on the Colorado Front Range and that can be challenging for the newest members in the wildlife world. Thankfully, these two owlets have mama right there with them, helping to keep them warm.
Finding this nest was a pleasant surprise for me yesterday, especially since I had yet to photograph any owlets this season. I was out on my photo drive going down a muddy, rural road and glanced over and there they were – reasonably close to the road. I spent some time photographing the trio and even got to see dad as well. A fun find on Earth Day 2023.
