This time year it is easy to find birds doing what comes naturally: being young.
Here is the one young Screech-Owl I could find today from the Lithia Park nest, roosting abut thirty feet from where it was born. No sign of the other three owlets could I find.


Late in the day I found a second owlet, right in the nest cavity…click here for that blog.
