Eastern Screech Owl – Gray Morph
This was my first gray morph Eastern Screech Owl pair that I photographed early this year. It was also the first nest that I got to witness the entire fledging process. Adult flew in and posed next to the nest on this branch and was staring at the photographers. One by one, the baby left the nest and flew into the palm tree to join the parents. It was an amazing experience to have witnessed the entire process.
Here is an adult looking back at the photographers.
Adult landed on the side of the nest trying to encourage the owlets to take the first step.
