Time Goes By So Fast!
I apologize to my viewers that I have not posted more. It is hard to believe that it is 23 days since the egg hatched. Typically, young screech owls fledge at 26 days so we don't have much longer to watch. Last night, the baby owl displayed two actions indicating that it is nearly ready to leave--frequent stretching and flapping of its young wings, and climbing to the entry to wait for food. In a couple of days, it will climb and take the plunge to the ground, never to return to the nest box of its birth. Enjoy this video and the next couple of days of live feed:
