Juvenile Screech-Owls

On Friday Garrett Cox who lives on Villa Park Drive sent me these neat pictures. They are juvenile Eastern Screech-Owls he found in his backyard. Garrett wrote, "Last night while enjoying the post-rain weather I noticed two small birds on my back fence. It wasn't until I paid closer attention that I noticed that it was two small Owls and they were doing a very active dance, bobbing and moving their heads in a very neat manner." My guess is that these guys recently fledged and are just getting the hang of being owls! See my recent NASWC article about our neighborhood owls here. Thanks for the great pictures!
