    Got up this morning after driving down to my trailer last night on the Lower Colorado River on the AZ/CA border and took some pics of around camp and of the river for our up coming gathering here on the river

    This little guy is the last chick to fly the coupe, I’m thinking it’s up to 2 weeks behind its other two siblings( check out the first thread “hooters on the river“http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45058. Last weekend we were down here the first left the nest and this last Tuesday the other made a go for it but this is the sad thing about the story, the lady next door to the camp here found the owl chick hung up in her kids swing set in the back yard with a broken wing . The people called animal control and they took it to a place that takes care of wild animals for a hopeful full recovery. These little guys have been so cool to watch this past spring. Still one to go ,haven’t seen or heard its parents this morning and just hoping it still getting taken care of by the adult owls

    I'm just a sucker for baby birds (or any other creatures for that matter).

    Thanks for showing them.

    Dear Brother Miller;
    Dale, "THANK YOU" for the great photos and story.
    REPS to ya for your efforts on behalf of a fellow creature of our planet that needed your help!:smile2:
    I will also put a "Prayer" with your name and forward it. Perhaps some small, but nice, thing will happen to you in the next couple of weeks or so. You will know when it happens. :smile2:
    "Thanks Again"
    Fraternally and Sincerely,
    Coyote1
