  •  fledglings at this time of year (5+ / 0-)

    I'd bet on it...momma brought something for them to kill maybe.

    I once found 5 youngin's moaning way up in a tree...the adults a couple blocks away calling back. They were a grey pattern baby feathers...summer it was, they were big.

    By now they would have grown up flight feathers.

    •  Thanks for solving the mystery (4+ / 0-)

      We've had a growing number of screech owls hanging out in our area (25 acres of open field with old growth trees surrounding) . Every year around this time we startle a group and never could figure out why. We have one who has lived here for years.
