The above video tells the story of a screech owl family that lived just beyond my backyard last spring.
I re-edited just a bit after finding a new image of the last baby owl after it left the nest -- and enlarged the final image just a tad for dramatic effect.
The video is still 3 minutes and 24 seconds long, and if you like owls or cute baby critters, it should be a fast 3:24.
The video features footage from the nesting box's miniature video-cam, great outside photography by my friend and colleague Jerry Barrack, and a rousing soundtrack by the Hunger Mountain Boys.
If you like the video, please spread the word. As you'll see, this was a labor of love.
I sure do hope you'll like it. If not, let me know how I can make it better!
In the meantime, if you are new to this blog, I hope you'll look around and then visit often.
It is about nature, birds, and a magical place in North Jersey called the Celery Farm. I try to post almost every day.
I also recently did a less ambitious video of a great blue heron walking on the ice. I also did a sweet video of a young friend who happened to be singing "What a Wonderful World" a capella just as a female wood duck flew into her nesting box.
