Adventures & NiteTime Antics

What an exciting night. With both owlets flying like pros and practicing their hunting skills in the greenbelt, no deliveries were witnessed on camera. Upon settling in for the day they seem satisfied.

Early exit time last night for both Mags and Boomer. Kids arrived home 3:22am but continued to play until they both went in at 5:40ish am

Sydney sits in the tree back in the greenbelt coxing the kidlets to fly out that way.

Great show last night , even the box had a smiley face. See it?
