One of the parents was sitting in a tree across from the babies.
I turned around to see what the parent was looking at and saw this.
Two fuzzballs were in the old owl’s nest.
“What are you looking at big brother?”
They were both watching the parent.
“Dad, when are you gonna feed us?”
The littlest one stayed in the same spot while the bigger one was moving around a little.
I found the other parent high up in the same tree as the babies.
As the sun was going down, big brother climbed over the other side of the big branch.
I think most people had given up on the owl’s nest this year. For two months back in December they sat on the nest. I knew that was way too long. I stopped by in late January and both owls were off the nest. I think everyone thought they wouldn’t be successful this year and something must have happened. Did the eggs not hatch? No one knew for sure. I hadn’t been back to the park since then. Then I got a message from Judy about baby owls there and finally was able to make it over after work. I guess at some point the parents tried again. Better late than never. Thanks to Judy for the head’s up on them.
