The two great horned owlettes are growing fast and will soon fledge from the nest. I took these photos yesterday. If you look closely, the one on the left is actually sitting backwards with its head turned around. It seems to always perch this way. I wonder if there is something wrong with this little one? I haven't been able to catch Mom or Dad at the nest.They are there very early in the morning, and then seem to disappear. I wonder where they go all day.
They sit so close to one another. Always touching, never separate.
Their ear tufts are forming and becoming more prominent.
The steely-eyed stare.
