Good Evening!

This is the second owl nest that I've been watching - Frida and Diego, the Barn Owls. Their website is

Frida started out with 7 eggs, and ended up with a brood of 4. Unlike the Bakersfield bunch, they are still with Mama, and have a way to go before they fledged. Like the Snowy Owl, the Barn Owl has a most unusual appearance, as the arrangement of feathers gives it a "moonface" look, which is one of its main identifying features. The youngsters are starting to take on that same look, but have quite a way to go before they resemble their folks! They, like the Great Horned chicks, have their own "cuteness' factor, as you can see in these shots. Hope you enjoy them ! ! DaveKay
