New residents at La Richardière

We were delighted to see two juvenile Long-Eared Owls in one of our trees today.

We knew there was something "afoot" as we had heard the cries of the baby owls through the previous night. Imagine our surprise when these two chaps appeared.

They wait about all day on the tree branches, then at night fall, the adult birds arrive with food. Hence the night rime cries and responses. This could last for two weeks according to the experts.
