Tonight we have three baby owls and a parent, I have been watching the babies all day. This happened last year about the same time and I educated myself on the habits of them. When I first discovered the babies they were all on the ground below the tree. I have found out this is normal and they will be fine, of course the dogs are restricted to the front yard only until the babies are up on their own. The parent stayed perched in the tree near by all day, the babies were able to pull themselves up on to the tree, almost disappearing into the bark of the tree. It was amazing how well they blend in, they were aware of my presents but I stayed back and I know they knew I was not of any harm. Their bright yellow eyes are just so telling. I was very distracted by them and didn't get all my planned work done, but it was so worth it. I am grateful to have these close encounters and wonderful experiences with animals. I can't help but wonder if the adult is one of the babies from last year that has returned to my tree. "Have Respect For The Earth And All Living Creatures"
