Dad!

IMG_4882

There have been some exciting developments with the great horned owls. Yesterday, Mom laid a second egg! Now that Mom has two eggs to care for and protect she will very rarely if ever leave the nest. That means that it is up to Dad to bring her her meals. Even though we don’t see Dad very much he is never far away and stays in a tree nearby. If you look closely at this still shot from the great horned owl cam, you can see Dad perched on a branch of the next tree. Look just to the right of Mom’s head. They sure do have great camouflage!

Check in on the owls by clicking on the link below or visit the library. When classes are not working, the owl cam will be on the big TV!
