Mama and her owlets!

This is such an amazing story!  We were having two huge dead trees removed when they found a Screech Owl's nest with 4 precious babies.  They asked what we wanted done.  We called Nature's Nursery who came and removed the babies and brought a nesting box which we hung.  We waited anxiously for mama to return and yep...she is back and caring for her wee little ones.
Nesting box.

Nest found in tree.  Notice mama had a robin in there to feed the little ones.  They are they cotton balls you see there.

One of the little babies.

Here they are in a little basket warm used until mama returned.

There were four all together.
