I'm a Grand Rapidian who follows this list per the recommendation of Bob Tarte from his book *Feather Brained*. It's a great read for anyone who enjoys self-deprecating birding humor. Bob also does a wonderful job of sprinkling in game-changing birding resources like this e-mail list.
A colleague of mine, Kevin Tempelman, was riding his bike through the campus of Aquinas College last night and stumbled upon a family of Barred Owls. He said the two fledglings were hopping around on the branches. The mother sat on a tree nearby, and the father later flew in with a rabbit. Luckily Kevin had his camera on him and knows how to use it! Enjoy the photos Kevin was able to capture.
They were spotted on a drive along the north edge of Wilcox Park leading back to one of the dorms.
