Egg no. 2 Debuts

Visible for the first time at 8:13 PM CDT, egg no. 2 was laid sometime this afternoon (after 1:55 PM). Well done, Mme. Owl, and keep up the good work.

One of my screech owls once laid a clutch of six—as big as clutches come—and I’m still hoping to see that happen again, as rare and challenging for the parents (and owlets) as it is. That said, any clutch that produces healthy owlets is fine with me.

  1. That image is so odd - it looks like those two eggs just rolled in, pinball-style, out of that hole in the wall. In fact, that's probably where adults tell owlets they come from. "Storks leave eggs in cabbage patches" just doesn't make sense.
    Thanks, as always.
