This owlet was really hard to spot. If he had not been squawking for mother owl I would never have seen him. He is quite large… nearly as large as the parent owls.
Here are some fun owlet facts:
- Fuzzy brown feathers make him blend right in with the tree branches.
- Owlets have sharp talons.
- Owlets do not fly very well for several months.
- The owl parents may continue to feed their babies for five months.
