The Branchlings

I got home yesterday afternoon and had to take a quick trip to see the Owls. Once the trees are all full of leaves you won't be able to see them anymore. Look at these guys, I can't say they are that cute but they are really big fluff balls for sure. You can see a little bit of the mom. She was watching us very intently. What a treat this has been. Remember you can click on to make the pictures bigger.

We also saw these swallows and a Sandhill Crane.

I have to get back to the loom so I this is it for now. I will report on the trip in the next week or so. It was fantastic!

Oh man Kate! Those are National Geographic quality. I couldn't see the owls until I enlarged the photo and then they took my breath away. Glad you're home. Can't wait to hear all about your trip!
