Have any parents out there woken up one morning and realized your “baby” is taller then you are? That must be how our foster owl has been feeling lately. Now that adulthood is creeping in, our fledgling eastern screech owl has grown in almost all her adult feathers and now weighs 193 grams! (That’s 0.4 pounds, for those, like me, to whom grams make no sense). Overall, baby is flying well, has a very healthy appetite and is now 20 grams heavier than our adult.
