I ran into a friend while out on my photo excursion yesterday and he showed me this nest (thank you!). Situated in trees right next to a pretty busy road, in it we found mama and two young ones. As you can tell, mom was really happy to see me. 😉
As it was mid-morning, the shadows were pretty strong so I actually didn’t even see the owlet in the middle until I got home and processed the pics.
The nest is pretty well concealed, not easily seen despite the public location. It is a bit disconcerting to see them so close to a road but hopefully when the little ones fledge, they will stay out of harm’s way.
