A morning with the Spotted Owlets....

May 13, 2011

It was an NTP outing…. I accompanied Radha and Shreeram to Lalbagh this morning.

We did see a lot of interesting things,but I want to first share our morning tryst with One,Two, and Three…the Spotted Owlets!

The Two flew into the hole in the tree-trunk (probably it is a nest) owlt hole 1 130511 lb From there, we got several looks: Photobucket Then the two flew up to sit side by side, though, of course, one of them was mooning us: two owlts frnt back b 130511 Then both decided to be rude: two owlts bk view lb 130511 But they were happy together, preening each other: two owlts prng  b 130511 So of course, we circled round the tree to get a better view: last photo owlt lb 130511 They looked adorable: two owlets in shade lb 130511 How much can one bend its head? owltsyoga lb 130511 Then THREE also appeared, sitting on a branch: third owlt lb 130511
