The Great Horned Owlets of 2021 Update

The three owlets, accompanied by Papa G’Ho, have now been moved to A2, one of the Center’s largest bird pens. This will allow them to continue to spread their wings, as well as have more space to spread out in general. As time passes, these owls will spend less time in close proximity to one another, a natural sign of behavioral maturation. In the wild, adult Great Horned Owls are solitary, and eventually, these young owls will be moved to their own pens before their release in the fall. 

Another positive result of their recent move to A2 is that the owls can now be viewed on our Critter Cams! Watch them grow here.
