Summer &Fall 2001

The owlets will spend the summer in their parents territory before striking off on their own this fall. They should master basic flying skills in the first two weeks, but learning to hunt will take the rest of the summer. This time with their parents will also teach them the social rules needed to get along with other barred owls, and the survival skills needed to avoid their enemies. They will be moving about in a territory that is about one square mile in size, so that sightings should be infrequent, but will be reported on this page when they do occur.

This picture of Emmett was taken on June 6th as he branched in a tree near the nest box.
