Our good friend John West went to Cattail Cove State Park today to get this photo of the Great Horned Owl chicks. Notice, on the far left is also an adult, which I would assume is the mom. My guess is the chicks hatched some time around the first week in March, and will probably not be able to leave the nest until around the middle of May. Even though they can fly then, they will still be dependent of being fed by the parents for a couple of more months. Owls hatch asynchronous, meaning not at the same time, and this is evident if you look at this post and the former post, you can see the three chicks are of different sizes.
