More owlet drama.......

From Mom -
Came home this noon to find owlet 3 on the ground !! The parents kept up a ruckus last night hooting and cooing. We thought about what to do and decided to get the ladder and put it back in the laundry basket. It was hard to pick up and had plenty of wing span and nothing broken or injured but we felt it was too dangerous on the ground. Within an hour it was out of the basket and branching on the ash tree.
No 2 watched the whole event from its perch on the pine tree 50 feet away.
Now No 3 is way up in the ash and No 2 way up in the pine talking to each other.
