I am a little late posting the: “Owlet yawn. Or it is saying ‘Happy Mother’s Day!'” photo. The reason why I think the owlet may be saying “happy Mother’s Day” is that I took these photos near Endovalley in Rocky Mountain National Park on Mother’s Day. My mother requested a drive in the park and we just happened to find the location of the owlet in the nest with the mother owl.
The latest word is that the owlet will probably be fledging in about a week. It is already moving around a lot more – stretching and testing out the wings!
