Great Horned Owl Nest Update

Here are some photos of the Great Horned Owls nesting at Chesterforest and Still Forest. I haven't been able to monitor the nest myself, but Steven Bach has taken these wonderful photos showing the growth of the owlets. Originally there were three, but now there seem to be two. Thanks so much for checking on the owls and sharing your photos, Steven!

This is Steven. I talked to a neighbor about them, and found out that one owlet had worked its way to a tree across the street, but has returned to the group now. I saw all three together today with Mama Owl watching over them.

Here's a direct link to the set of owlet photos:
