"BETTER THE DEVIL YOU KNOW"

Great Horned Owl (Owlet) - 9 Photos

 

 

Guess who has their trademark "horned owl" feather/tufts!! :) 

 

This is the first set of photos where I've noticed the little "horns" on the owlet. (Have included an earlier photo for comparison. See Photo #2.) In combination with those big yellow eyes, particularly when they are so dilated, it definitely gives that devilish look.

 

And as you will see from Photo #8 & Photo #9, the youngster has also earned its flight wings and is now an amazing flyer! 

 

It won't be long now to complete independence. We just have to add those hunting skills to our repertoire. Mum & Dad should be in the near vicinity for a little longer to bring food to their offspring until it has mastered this last life skill and then it will be off to a territory of its own.
