Progression of Boo the owlet

 (from 2014 owl nesting season)
We are all amazed at how fast Boo is progressing in growth and reaching the index as owlets goes. Boo's eyes are open and pin feathers are presently growing on both wings, we see just a hint left of the eye tooth used to break out of the shell.
Boo was able to gulp down his/her's own little frog at 7 days of age.  

We were all surprised when Dad jumped into the nesting box while Mrs B was out on a flyabout and try to hand off a crayfish to Boo to eat. It was one of those "Cuteness overload" moments. Both Mr.B and Mrs B are doing a wonderful job caring for baby Boo
