1 week old Great Horned Owl chick, found on the ground with a dead sibling. He was cold and lethargic and no mother was nearby. Once he is stronger, if the mother returns we can attempt a renesting. The neighbors will be watching and listening for the mother.
In just 10 days, the baby Great Horned Owl has grown from just over 300 grams to about 800 grams. It is stronger, eating great and there is a hint of color to him/her now. For a picture 10 days ago when it first came in, scroll down in our page post feed.
