Young Western Screech Owl fledgling

Last evening, just at dark, as I watched some bats I heard some vocalizations in the trees that seemed familiar. Soon I saw 2 'figures' (just blurred things flying from a tree). I got out my spotlight and found the source of the continuing vocalizations--a young Western Screech Owl. Though I tried to get pics of the owl lit by my strong spotlight, these were not any good so returned this morning and refound this owl, getting these two pics I digi-scoped through my spotting scope by hand-holding my Canon S90 point and shoot camera over the lens. More to follow. SeEtta
