AM, T=a cool 70F, 5 degrees cooler than yesterday
6:20am, walk around the block yielded 3 owlets in the huge oak on Woodland, E side right over the street. Adult owl was on watch right below them, but silent.
PM, T=85F
8:30PM, same walk, owlets one tree west, in the magnolia. Their job at this point is just to stay up in the canopy and get used to flight—launching, balancing, managing their wings in the foliage, landing. They don’t yet visit the ground, or drink or bathe; they just stay up high and get fed.
