The house is full. Generally, the parents were sitting outside the house during the days while sleeping as the babies filled the house. This movie shows a third smaller baby that the mother is sitting on. The babies now fly and we've seen them on the far end of the barn perched on the window sills.

The juveniles are taking on color and are out growing the house. Both parents are now routinely sitting on the rafters outside of the owl house. With warmer temperatures, the juveniles are no longer in need of mother's warmth. This movie shows the parents bringing in mice that the juveniles swallow whole. We can count three juveniles for sure but the camera angle prevents viewing. Very soon, we expect the juveniles to come out of the house and try the perches. The attached photo shows the parents sitting in the rafters near the house. Stay tuned; Ed
