Several people had been posting photos of the momma Great Horned Owl and her owlets. The pictures were adorable, so of course I had to go see for myself. Last Saturday we took Kirby for a walk at the park, which also contains a wild bird sanctuary with trails so that you can enjoy the area. As it was a pretty if windy day, the park was teeming with activity. I was not surprised to see a half a dozen people stopped on the trail in the bird sanctuary to admire the babies. There are three of them hiding in the hollowed out segment of a tree. One was pretty bashful, so we only got a peek at it, but the other two seemed just as curious about us. They were particularly interested in Kirby. The one made some clicking noises, which I interpreted as his or her call to momma that dinner was within view.
