Great Horned Owlet tries his wings

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.
