Momma owl is still around!

I keep thinking I've seen the last of her, but she is keeping the chicks nearish the nesting cavity. I think I hear the poppa in the forest at night. 'Who-cooks-for-you!"
I didn't go looking for the chicks, as I have wonderful views of them from the previous day, June 14th!
These are from June 15th, I didn't see her yesterday. I was watering the veggie garden, another dry week, and she swooped onto the branch.

She continues to feed her two chicks. I was watering the veggie garden when she swooped over to a tree. The first segment is in slow motion, as she is so fast. Hubby and I were watching her. I called him out, with orders to grab his binoculars! June 15th The first few seconds are in slow-motion. She is fast.

She must be used to you by now, and she must feel safe and at home there.
