Barred Owl chick, Spring Creek, Richardson/Garland, Texas

This young Barred Owl is one of two chicks produced by the adult pair exhibited here. Leo was the first to emerge from their nest and appears more developed than his sibling Snowflake. Both siblings are very curious about their world. At this age the young owlets can fly only for short distances. Here Leo is confidently perched near the top of a large oak tree with the setting sun illuminating one eye.
