Tawny Chicks Fledge

The tawny owl chicks, whose parents I feed from my garden bird table, have just fledged. I made them this nest box out of an old elm tree stump. They seem to have made themselves quite at home in it and the wood will make a great backdrop for future paintings.
They are getting quite big now, although their feather's are still very fluffy. It's been great watching their little characters develop as they grow. I've named this one Bernard.. It will be September before they are ready to fend for themselves
