I found this little guy and 2 of his siblings in a tree between the garden and my barn. I can't believe I was lucky enough to even spot him. I think it is an eastern screech owl he is only about 3-4 inches tall.

Cool! The little ones like those horizontal branches where they can walk around and practice moving their wings.

Be careful out there 8>)

We just found their "main" tree. A really tall oak. There were 5 in it 2 adults and 3 fledglings. They are so funny when they lean wwwaaaayy over to look at us. I now realize they have been watching us longer then we have been watching them.
