Look 'hoo' is out of the nest! When I visited this great horned owl family previously, this juvenile was still in the nest while its sibling had ventured out to a nearby branch. Now they are both out of the nest and will not return. Young may leave the nest as early as 5 weeks old by hopping onto branches and begin flying at 9-10 weeks of age.
Seeing as how this is graduation season, are there any human parents out there experiencing empty nest feelings??
Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and thank you for following along!
