Great Horned Owl with chick!

March 27, 2013 in Nearby Landbirds

One of the most exciting parts of the birding annual cycle is to observe and monitor the breeding cycle.  This Great Horned Owl nest is one of those special treats.  This nest is located in the Heron rookery in Methuen alongside the Spicket River.  At the moment, only one chick is visible with eyes barely open.  Let’s stay tuned over the next few weeks to see if any siblings emerge and how long it will take to first see the checik upright and the with open eyes!
