07/10/17 Barred Owlets

Posted: August 2, 2017 in Uncategorized

I’ve been lucky to be able to follow these Barred Owlets in Acadia this season. They are about 10-12 weeks old at this time. These photos are from a few separate encounters. The one night was pretty crazy. The adults were bringing back mice to the owlets, they decided to drop to the ground to eat them. I was only a few feet away and concerned mommy would not appreciate that. As I moved away, one of the owlets continued to follow me down the path. I swear it though I would feed it. There was so much action going on, I didn’t know what to photograph first. A short time later, the darkness made it impossible to shoot anymore. It was quite the experience.  Since then, I haven’t been able to locate them.
