The establish pair of Barred Owls at Magnolia Plantation had two chicks this year but it seems just one survived once they left the nest.
I saw them peeking from the nest the first week of April so this one must be at least 8 or 9 weeks old.
Not a reliable flyer yet, he will depend on his parents for food for several more weeks when they’ll start to teach him how it’s done.
One of the parents was watching from 100 feet (30 Meters) away; the other may have been right there, too, but I didn’t see him.
