and Daphne slept under June for most of the day, but woke up every couple
of hours to demand food. Each time June heard them peeping and wheezing,
she reached for the large bird that they started yesterday. They are shown
here just after they climbed out to accept the small bites of prey that
she placed in their beaks. Dexter was the first one out and was getting
most of the food until Daphne pushed her way in on the left and reached
high enough to get her share. It was a warm sunny day, so that June was
able to leave the owlets alone and go out for a thirty minute visit with
Ward. During June's absence, they huddled together along with the egg to
keep warm. If that egg is to hatch, it should happen in the next two days.
Ward was back again just after sunset with another delivery and is keeping up with the growing needs of the family thus far.
