AM
, no sign or sound of the owlets this morning. We think they have moved farther N, but probably still within the interior of our block.
PM, took a walk around the block to see if we could spot/hear the fledglings. Yup, we heard soft hooting from the big oak in the middle of the block on Woodland, N side of the street. We sat on the curb to wait and were rewarded with the sounds of the feeding rasp. All 3 fledglings were cavorting on a tangle of electrical wires next to the telephone pole that goes up through the foliage (didn’t their parents ever tell them not to play with electrical wires or plastic bags?)
This big tree has hosted owlets each year we have seen them fledge.
