Nora Owl is still sitting. Either her owlets have hatched and they are not showing their cute faces or they will be hatching very soon.
Crane gliding above the Sandias. We saw a handful of cranes tonight.
A cute bunny greeted me when I got home. He was still hanging out when I left to check on Nora Owl.
The Sandias from the Beach at sunset.
Daddy Owl was hooting when I walked up to the tree he was in. Mama Owls was answering him.
When I walked over to Mama Owl’s hole in the tree, she stopped answering Daddy Owl and ducked into the hole. If you look carefully you can see the tipity tips of her ear tufts.

Another beautiful evening in the bosque, Tim. I enjoyed everything. We had a spectacular cloud day followed by rain, and then a clearing in the west towards sunset. Golden hills set against dark skies to the east.
That sounds beautiful, Lavinia. Thanks,
These are spectacular Tim! You are so lucky to have such a beautiful assortment of wildlife in your backyard!
Thanks, Tiffany. We are blessed.
Love the way, Nora Owl keeps a wary eye on the surroundings! So beautiful!
Thanks, Puzzleblume. She doesn’t see as many people as Mama Owl.
Nora owl shot is so beautiful!!! I love the tinted crane over the Sandias and that Moon looks like a smiling face in the sky! Obviously I left best for last… sunset painting! If only the painter knew what joy he brings! 😉🙏
Thanks, Marina. It was a very nice evening with a comfortable temperature and very light wind.
You describe the perfect weather!
Quite a character is Mummy Wowl
She is. Thanks, Shey.
Well done, Tim. I’m looking forward to seeing the owlets.
How high up is her nest? It can’t be that much for you to get such a great angle (with your big-ass lens)
Wonderful place you live in, Timothy.
Hi Dale. Her nest is probably around 15 feet from the ground, but where I stand she’s about 20 to 25 feet from me.
That’s what I thought. Because, even with a big lens, if she was higher up, you’d never be able to see the opening so well. Really cool that you can.
How far apart are Nora Owl and Mama Owl’s nests? Is there a Mr. Nora Owl in the mix?
Hi Maj & Sher. They are a mile apart. Osric Owl is Nora’s man owl. We heard him but we couldn’t find him. He has a lot more trees around where he can watch the nest from, so he can stay hidden easier than Daddy Owl. They don’t have as much interaction with people as Mama and Daddy Owl, so Osric is not as nonchalant about showing himself as Daddy Owl.
Realy amazing that you can go and check out the owl family. The Sandinas look great in the evening sun Timothey.
Can hardly wait for the reveal!
Wow… Beautiful images Tim…. Nature never stops bringing New Life and Beauty…
Many thanks my friend for reaching out.. Hope you received back my reply
Wonderful to get so close to these beautiful creatures.. Owls especially a favourite of mine..
Have a beautiful Spring Equinox… : 🙂 💜
Thanks, Sue. I got your reply.
Wonderful 🙂 and again a big thank you
Nora had her eye on you!
She’s a bit wary. Thanks, Teri.
And the painter did well.
The sky is astonishing. And your photo of the moon is too.
I love the Owl family’s diary you tell us about every day. It is nice to have news from them,
I can’t wait to discover the babies, which we may see at some point, if Mummy Owl and Daddy Owl let them show the tips of their ears…
It’s the weekend, and this is the perfect set of photos to start it off with a smile… Thank you.
It’s fun to keep up with the Owls. Owlets will be showing up soon. Thanks, Flo.
Thanks for being a nice paparazzo to them! 🙂
I try. They are nice to allow me to pester them. Thanks, Flo.
Please tell me you took that bunny home with you…..he’s so damn cute.
He was already home. So he brought himself home. He is adorable. Thanks, Ruelha.
I remember reading that…..but is he yours? or lucky to have found him that day in your home?
He’s wild. Just hangs around the property.
Gorgeous pictures. Nora looks fabulous. Do we have owlets?
Hi Gabriela. I think she does, but they aren’t showing themselves yet. She’s been sitting for around six weekd now.
I can’t wait to see them, Timothy. I am dreaming about.
I can’t wait to see all the owlets from these two pairs!
Soon. Thanks, Mary Jo.
Love Mama’s eye! How will you know when the eggs are hatched?
I won’t know. At some point the owlets start showing themselves.
Daddy is probably getting ready for long days and nights of providing food for the little ones.
He’s already working hard feeding mama. Not too long after the little ones hatch, Mama starts hunting again, also. It takes both of them to keep the growing owlets full.
Oh love that painter Tim! I can’t see her tuffs, not fair … Super shots, I just love the first of Nora 🙂
