Saw Whet owls

In early May, I got a call about a nest of young Saw Whet owls at Market Lake and so we went and found them.  Only this little guy would poke its head out and then it would go back in.  Several days later the top of the nest box had been broken and the owlets were gone.
A week later while looking for warblers in a willow thicket about a quarter of a mile away, I flushed this male.

As I looked in the thicket, I found six owlets.

Later I found more along the Henrys Fork of Snake River.

Just more wild days in Idaho.
