The Pantry’s Full, The Owlets are Growing

Dad’s been bringing prey to neighboring trees so that Mom can retrieve it without being gone too long. The owlets were just over an ounce in weight when they hatched, and they have started gaining a little over an ounce a day. If all goes well, by the end of the first month they will weigh in the neighborhood of 2 pounds each! They are going to need lots of food to gain all that weight, and so far it looks like they will have all they can eat!
