All Wet, All Dry

We had early morning showers and got all wet.

Could she at least wait until we're done with hair and makeup?

Below is not a great quality photo BUT it is pretty interesting. It was early morning, very low light. I found out where one of the parents was on watch because it was getting mobbed by other birds. There were crows screaming and dive bombing the adult owl. But I do not know what bird this is in the photo flying above the owl. I did not know I caught the shot until processing. If you know, tell us!

The owlets spent most of the morning preening and drying out.

All dry from the back

The owlets spent the afternoon hanging out on the second floor, preening, napping and watching other birds in the garden. Twinkle Toes and MiniMe spent most of the day within touching distance of each other. This is the second day since TT’s big adventure and they have been staying close.

It is the bewitching hour. The owlets are waking up, stretching. Soon the squawking will start. The owlets are looking out over the marsh wondering what’s for dinner.

My parents, Jeanne and Lou, are visiting from New Jersey. They arrived yesterday, to see the owlets of course! They had no plans to visit until they saw all the owlet photos and stories on this blog. And heard my blow-by-blow descriptions over the phone. So they bought plane tickets to see them in person, er owl?, and are thoroughly enjoying the entertainment. I am trying to get them to write a guest blog post.

So my narrative may be a little shorter but I will try to keep up with photos and developments. Cheers!
