New kids on the block

Friday, my son and I (thanks to a neighbor’s tip), got our first glimpse of the new kids on the block – two Great Horned owlets.  I returned this morning to snap a few quick pictures so as not to draw too much attention although a half dozen spectators were in attendance.  The owl on the right appears especially unhappy with having spent the night out in the rain.

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.
