Young owl

I took the dogs to the park yesterday. I guess everyone thought it was a good day to go to the park.  Dont these people have jobs?  LOL   I saw a baby, or young, owl. He was very cute.

He was pretty far away. I was trying to hold the dogs and take pictures. So a lot of the pictures are one handed with a long lens. So they are kinda blurry.

He kept trying to walk up the tree. He seemed unsteady walking up the tree. At first I was worried he couldnt fly.

Then he moved up the tree more and was hiding behind this branch.

I was moving and trying to get a better shot. He moved up the tree again and I thought that shot I can get. But all these people started coming. Bikes and dogs. So I had to pay attention to my dogs. I wanted to make sure they didnt bark and scare the owl away. No one barked but when I turned back to take the picture, the owl was gone. I guess he could fly.

I walked down the rest of the path and came back to look again for the owl. Still gone but now this guy was there.
