And then there were two…

Pardon my lack of ornithological expertise…what I thought was a change in maturation of a lone owlet last week was a second owlet altogether.  We were not aware that there were two owlets until last Tuesday (May 8), when they came together after a flock of crows began to hassle them.  The parent showed up almost right away to offer support.

owl update

The owlet appears to be going through a major growth spurt – compare last weeks photo (April 25) versus this most recent one taken last Thursday evening (May 3).  Its fledgling flights also appear to be more extended as it moves among the tree tops in the Como Park area.  I’ve yet to see much interaction between the female and the owlet as far as feeding – perhaps that’s more of a nighttime activity.
