A very crowded house. Well, not a house but a nest, and it sure is running out of room.
Four Great Horned Owl owlets are squeezed into this nest and as they grow, space is becoming a premium. As seen in this image taken yesterday, there just isn’t much room for the growing offspring.
I would not be surprised to see one or more of them start to move out to the tree’s branches by the end of this week or early next and they will fledge soon after. Certainly that will be bittersweet as it has been a lot of fun watching them grow and I hate to see them leave.
Taken in Commerce City, Colorado.
