Great Horned Owlet


The Great Horned Owl is widely spread across North America. It is also fairly common, yet not particularly easy to find. There is, however, a local nest site that had been used other years. It merited exploratory visits.

With the Great Horned, both parents attend the nest, and as far as I can tell, both have been seen, but on different occasions. They have two owlets, but I have only seen one.

This is one of the parents.

The markings of this owl seem different, so I assume it is the other parent.

The star of today’s visit was one of their owlets.
