HAPPY EARTH DAY!
Gus and I checked on the baby owls mentioned in a previous post on Sunday, April 19th. As you can see, all four of them are growing big. I wonder how much longer they will be here before they fly off on their own to make their way in the world. I wish you well little owls!

The owlets all look good and healthy. I hope they made it and are able to go off on their own. This is a nice post.

Wow, four must be a handful to keep fed--growing as birds do!
I imagine the parents bring a steady supply to their growing brood.
So nice to see them again.

It took me a while to spot the fourth pair of eyes. They blend into their background so well.

See you soon Kathie!!!

Thank you Kathie, I have been wondering it they survived their highway highrise position. They look even more adorable.

That is awesome!! The owlets are just beautiful. I don't get a chance to see owls very often so this is a REAL treat! Thanks for sharing.
