First baby

This little three week old cutie, TYLER, fell out of his nest late this afternoon. It was a bit crowded up there with three babies and mom. Because owls don't build their own nests, they borrow, the one they choose may not be large enough when the babies are growing. That was the case here as mom chose an old magpie nest. GHO's usually have a couple babies, this mom outdid herself with three.

Luckily the home owner has been keeping a good watch on the family and found the baby right away. Because there wasn't a way to get the chick back to the nest I brought him home and will hand him over to SMIDGE, my GHO foster mom. For now he can see his "sibling" in the mirror.
