Fledgling Screech Owl 1st landing

Fledgling Screech Owls take the leap.

Two young Screech Owls recently left the nest to explore their world. After taking their 1st flights, the pair nearly met a premature end to traffic on Powderhouse Road in Vestal Center, NY. Thankfully, they were escorted to safety away from the road into a nearby wooded lot.

Wonderful pictures! I love owls and have yet to find any in nature to observe or to photograph.

I heard an owl a month or 2 ago, maybe it was them. I've noticed less mice, maybe they helped take care of that. Owls are great animals, very helpful. I'd like a hawk to visit my yard and take out those pesky squirrels, and maybe the chipmunks too.
