Mom & Baby Owl

A friend of mine was down at the river fishing and called me and told me he saw a Owl with a mouse or rat going to a big old dead cotton wood tree close the the bridge. Sounded like the owl family from last year was back so I have been checking and sure enough I found Mom in a tree about 10 yards from where their nest is. Made me think YES there is babies and she is taking a break from them. Last year they had 3 babies. I spent quit a while with my binoculars looking but could not find the baby.
Yesterday the baby finally made his appearance. Only one so far.

Here is Mom



I decided to name him FUZZY. You will understand when you see the last photo.



Here is Fuzzy with a close up



Fuzzy up close



In a few days when he gets more brave I hope to catch him in a open area and in the sun.

Hi Roger,

Great stuff, as usual -- I've never seen any owl in the wild -- and the baby. . . just and incredible capture

Thanks.

Nice.... and somethig we never see down here.....

Maybe why the plastic pigeon decoy/deterent ones are totally ineffective down here.... they don't even know what they are and they don't move.

Great shots Roger, you must spend a lot of time scouting out wildlife.

Hi Ira, yes I spend a great amount of time out in the woods. I am pretty lucky out in the woods is where I want to be and I get to be out in the woods most of the time.
