steppin' out...

This is the latest from the Owl Box...see my previous post here if you don't know what I'm talking about. The owlets are just about about ready to start making forays out of the box. Carlos has set up the outside camera differently so this will be easier to see at night.
This video was recorded May 8th and is about 12 minutes long. At about 2:50 the owlet steps onto the edge of the box. Not very exciting maybe, but a first for this brood of owls, and so very sweet to see ;-)

You may want to set your volume down low, as the owlets are very close to the microphone so they sound quite loud.

Hi Doreen,
This has been such a wonderful experience! It'll be fun to watch them hopping out. Hopefully we'll be able to see it well enough, though I suspect Carlos will do his best to make that happen.
