Barred Owlets

Barred Owlets 
     By now I'm sure everyone knows about the Barred Owls nesting in Ridley Creek State Park along the bridle trail. We had discovered the nest in an old beech tree with a large cavity. Today I was at the bridle trail in search of Yellow-billed Cuckoos when I heard a strange noise coming from the side of the trail. After a little searching I was able to locate two owlets cuddled together calling for momma to feed them. I never saw either of the adult birds but it was a treat to find these guys. We now know that the nest was able to produce at least two fledglings.
A face everyone can love
