Great Horned Owlets…
Here is the video of Hoot’s owlets on the
nest on Wednesday, 04-14-21. I sat with them for about 2 1/2 hours. Hoot
was perched and hidden in a tree above the nest, so I wasn’t able to
get any photos of her. I took mostly video of the owlets today. I could
hear Hoot making some soft squawks after the owlets woke up.
light rain was falling, then around 1830 hours, it became increasingly
heavier and was expected to last another 1 1/2 hours stopping close to
sunset. The owlets had already spent about a half hour preening and now
they were just laying quietly in the nest.
I decided to go and
see if I could find Give a Hoot, the male, since it was raining harder. I
didn't expect the owlets to be very active while on the nest until the
rain let up.
I located Give a Hoot and I added his photos to the video.
