A typical Great Horned Owl clutch is two or three eggs. This past spring, one particular area nest was very successful with four very healthy looking owlets emerging from the nest.
That in and of itself is unusual but once they have fledged and branched out, it is very rare to be able to capture all of them in a single picture as they don’t normally continue hanging out right next to each other. This morning in May however I was lucky enough to do just that.
This was in fact the last time I would see any of the four as they moved on to begin their own lives soon after.
