Those nestlings have BRANCHED
Have you ever seen anything cuter? These sweet branchers ( an owl nestling who leaves the nest cavity and "branches" to nearby trees but is very dependent on parents) are the 2 kids that were mucking it up in front of the camera from their nest cavity (see them on video under the COOL LINKS tab). I received this photo from Tess McGurie who happened to be in our Snow Goose Festival "Owl night Out" event. She told me about this pic by Albert Boosman who photographed the branchers on May 21, 2010. Keep your eyes peeled for the petite fluffballs when hiking in the forests in summer!
