The Great Horned Owls babies are six weeks old now.
They were both sitting on the nest when I arrived this morning. One of them was tired and hopped into the nest to take a nap. The other one, however, felt more like exploring the area right next to the nest.
It hopped onto the nearest limb.
Oh - it needed to poop!
Innocent look afterwards...
... and some decent yawning.
Look at this big foot!!!
The wings were tested as well - they won't stay in the nest much longer anymore.
And as always, Mom is close by keeping an eye or two on the youngsters.
