DRIPPING SPRINGS, Texas (KXAN) — There’s yet another owlet update to bring you Friday, thanks to a family keeping close tabs on their owl box in Dripping Springs.
KXAN News Today’s Digital Download first brought you the story in early May about a pair of fuzzy owlets.
Our Dawn Denny shared the photos, though her daughter Grace did all the brave photography work — getting up there to snap a picture of the two screech owls that hatched in their owl house.
The baby screech owl trio are wide-eyed and growing fast.
Mama Owl had just dropped off food to them before flying off for more — because, as you know, a mom’s work is never done.
In case you’re wondering, owl boxes, like bat boxes, can be purchased and set up around the home — or anywhere you want an owl to live. It’s provides the perfect little space for owls to thrive, especially during the spring as their babies hatch.
Melody Stepan also sent in a video of an owl taking its morning bath in South Austin.
The Austin area’s been abuzz with critters popping up and buzzing about — where it’s birdies, and bunnies, and snakes! Oh, my!
