BIG LITTLE OWLS

Those baby Great Gray Owls seen via the Montana nestcam are now so big their mom can’t cover them up.  Here’s the link: https://explore.org/live-cams/player/great-gray-owl-nest

there are at least two, still quite fuzzy and white like large wads of cotton.  They often fledge at two weeks of age, long before they can fly…then they must use tooth and nail to climb back up into the safety of the forest.  While the owlets are grounded mom protects them as best she can.
