More on Owls

Here is an update from Chris Holmes:

I think we realize this was probably one of those once in a lifetime events!  

The mother owl was sitting on a branch by herself with the 3 babies a few limbs away.  As dusk settled in, the mother flew away and the babies flew to a tree in our backyard.  What was interesting  is we could approach them in the backyard and we’re within 6 ft as they sat on the lower branches. They were as curious about us as we were about them.    It was too dark to take decent pictures at that point.  Eventually the three young ones just flew away assuming to rejoin their mother.   We also confirmed through an avid birder that it was an Eastern Sceech Owl.  

Here’s a few different pictures as well…
