The Owls in the Maple tree

My husband sits most mornings with a cup of coffee and the dog by his side in our back yard.

The other morning he heard something unfamiliar in our maple tree. He stood under the tree and looked carefully at each branch.

To his surprise he located a small grey Owl, and another and another. Next he found Mom and Dad.

For the past few days we have spent a lot of time looking up.

In the evening the babies come down to the lower branches and seem to be curious about us.

Tonight the mother coaxed the babies to fly to the phone wires and then to the evergreen trees.

We hope they stay for a while. Feeling really lucky.

Thank you for sending us your charming story about the Owl family!
