Baby Birdorable: Great Horned Owl

September 30th, 2013 in Baby Birds, Owls 2 comments

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr Creative Commons) of the Great Horned Owl. Great Horned Owls don't make their own nests. They will use old nests from squirrels, hawks, or other species. They will also nest in tree stumps, abandoned buildings, nest platforms, or other structures. Often two eggs are laid, but the clutch size may be up to 4 or 5 eggs. As chicks grow, they begin to branch out from the nest. This happens about 40 days after hatching; true flight may not occur until 5-10 days after branching.
