Great Horned Owl Chicks – a few days old

Great Horned Owl Chicks

These little critters live about 40 ft up in the air, in a re-purposed osprey nest.  Last year 3 sets of osprey young were successfully raised by their parents in this nest.  Since this photo they have climbed up another 10′ – 12′ and are living precariously on a branch.  (Once they went up, they couldn’t climb down & thier wings don’t support flight.)
