Baby Barn Owls in Rural Boring

This family of owls has resided in the old barn for over 40 years and patrols our land for rodents. We love to see another healthy generation arrive.
Several times a year students come to an old barn located at the Asian Pear Orchard in rural Boring to gather food pellets left by the adult owls. The inspection of these pellets allows students and scientists an insight into the environmental conditions of our area.
Ryan, a pellet gatherer, took the photos. April 27, 2009
