The three owlets are named: Sunflower, Millet and Peanut.
Thanks for helping us name these cute little owlets.
Mama Barred Owl has set up residence in our owl nest box again this year. Jim Carpenter, President & CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, has hosted a camera-equipped owl box in his backyard for many years.
Mama, in late February checked out the box and began to set up house. She laid the first egg on March 5th, the second one on March 7th and third one March 9th. The eggs hatched on April 6, 8th and 10th. If all goes well, we can expect the owlets will fledge at four to five weeks of age.
