All winter and spring, I’ve followed the pair of Great Horned Owls that have nested in our neighborhood for the last eight years. This year, I filmed them copulating but then found the abandoned egg on the floor of the woods–failed nesting. I was so disappointed. But a month and a half laterI was delighted to learn that they had found a different nesting site and that they had an owlet there. Last week I posted a snippet of the owlet with a parent peering over its shoulder. Today, another snippet: he’s less downy, he’s out of the nest and he’s trying his wings.
