It was morning nap time at the owl nest today.
Mom sat in one tree about 50 feet from the nest box, miraculously free of branchlets across her body, eyes completely closed and unperturbed.
Dad sat in another tree a little further away, closer to the trunk as he usually does, also completely unperturbed by photographers snapping photos of him.
Two nestlings pressed tightly together in one corner of their nest box with their eyes closed, also completely unaware of how many people were staring at them from below. They look more and more like Ewoks with their fuzzy, downy plumage.
Momentarily wide-eyed to check us out, but then they went right back to their nap. The best guess is that they are about 6-8 weeks old now, and might be leaving this cozy nest box soon.
