06/19/17 Barred Owlets in Acadia Park

Posted: June 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

Finally after a month of looking, several days a week, Sharon and I found the Barred Owlets. This pair has nested in Acadia in the same hollow of a tree for the past several years. By the time we arrived in Bar Harbor, the owlets had already left the nest and fledged. We found one adult on the first day here, but no success finding the little ones. Needless to say, when we found them we were thrilled. Then, I politely asked the babies if they would mind lining up next to each other for some photos (lol). By the way, we haven’t located them since this day … the search continues.

  2. Magnificent, Ray! Those little ones do seem to be obediently following your request. Thanks to you and Sharon for your intense engagement with the natural world, then sharing it so generously. Blessings, c
