Weggs says they have counted 6 owlets in the tree and are not sure if there is another one or not. I tried to see them this morning and got a couple of snips of a cute mohawk hairdo.

Two of the Barneys were out of the hole this morning. They perched on the side of the tree, made a few quick flights, and were just having fun discovering their wings. One aimed a little too high when it tried to get back in the hole. Hilarious! LOL
HisWhisper did a good job following them with the cam and I popped in to tell her so. Weggs was there early to see the owl show and she has been so sweet to keep me up to date on the owl activity and milestones. I wanted her to know that I didn't miss them fledging. Care was there worrying about them.

I was thinking back to last year and the whole owl story at EC. I remember us listening to fledging owls in the nest box, but we couldn't see them because the cam had been moved to the pond. I remember how frustrating it was to all of us because we wanted to see them, wanted to ID the owls, and solve the mystery of who lived in the hole. I pitched lots of hissy fits which always made Coverts LOL.

I have found it particularly amusing, and personally satisfying, that the owl hole has been front and center at EC and some of the people that protested the loudest when we'd beg to have the owl hole view at night or on the weekend, have had to follow them 24/7. Some of those people have actually fallen in love with the Barn Owl.
Ain't life strange sometimes.

Amazing to get to see them so clearly and interacting. Thanks for posting it Bunnie. Was it Weggs who took the video? She did an awesome job. Good thing the Confusion Couch isn't up there any longer.

A couple of the Eaglecrest Barn Owls returned to their nest this morning to spend the day. One of them was doing the cutest "face show" right out front for all to see. I WISH IT HAD BEEN FULL SCREEN.

I'll never understand it. Either somebody has real animosity toward those cute, precious, heart shaped face baby barn owls or they have an insatiable appetite to follow geese and ducks around and around and around the pond, for hours, weeks, months on end.
