Great horned owl with 3 week old chick in nest There is actually 2 chicks in this nest - one is underneath when this was shot. I photographed them weekly from the age of 11 days until they finally fledged.  This is this owl's 5th year in this nest and the male was standing guard in an adjacent tree.
