Great Horned Owlet – Methuen Rookery

April 22, 2014 in Great Horned Owl

The Great Horned Owlet in Methuen continues to grow in size and change in plumage with darker colors. Nice observation time this morning while owlet in nest with adult no where to be seen. At first, owlet low in nest and then it just seemed to straighten right up providing much better looks. Estimated age is around 5-6 weeks old and ready to start “branching” very soon!
