The owlet was “rescued” a second time and is currently in a rehab center. A person who does not understand normal owl behavior called for help for this owlet twice this year. This is the third year one of these owlets was unnecessarily taken from the nest. Please encourage people to completely stop posting about these owls on social media.

The owls are in a different tree further away this year. I have been told that one baby was out of the nest for some reason but was rescued and placed back in the nest. A friend saw two babies in the nest a few days ago, one much smaller than the other. I have not gone to see them.

I understand one of the owlets was removed from Island Park after well meaning, but ignorant people called a critter control type outfit. Perhaps it’s best to remove the nesting tree, as these poor creatures are harassed incessantly each year by the locals. I stopped photographing them two years ago because it attracted too much attention. What a shame if this has happened. The nest was splashed all over social media.
