Mother Screech Owl and Child - Strong Bond



Mother Eastern Screech Owl and her only surviving child or "owlet" have a special bond spending all that time alone together in the nest box. It is such a different dynamic than the hectic times when there are 3 or 4 owlets like usual. I think the owlet is a female which is good since the other eggs were not viable - ensuring another generation. Very easy for the parents to give her lots of food so she is growing fast and should be gone within a week.
Hopefully the failure of the other eggs to hatch is not a trend developing, they owls have been amazingly successful over the years.
