    Here’s some addition information. Karla Bloem, Executive Director of the International Owl Center in Houston, Minnesota, wrote and told me that, at this stage of the owl’s development, the adult sitting in a nearby tree would always be the male.

    She has raised baby Great Horned Owls and sent me some of her research notes showing photos of the babies at various ages. Based on those photos, we agreed that the Feb. 8 photo (above) shows the babies at about two weeks old. The photo with the baby tucked into the adult’s feathers was taken a week later so that baby is about three weeks old. Earl
