They grow up so fast – Great Horned Owls

The baby owls are growing up fast at the Punta Gorda History Park.  On March 1st they were little fuzzballs who never left the nest.

On March 27th, they still feed in the nest but, are beginning to take the form of adults. The babyfuzz is almost gone and their adult plumage beginning to show through.

Right now, they don’t have all their flight feathers but, thoses are coming and it won’t be long before the wing stretching we are seeing now becomes hopping from branch to branch.

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
