Great-horned Owlet - Day 6
As best as I can tell, the mother only hatched one owlet this year. (Compared to 3 in 2009, and 2 in 2008). The eyes are possibly beginning to open somewhat at this point.
My best estimate as to when the owlet was born is March 14-17, meaning that in this photo taken March 23rd, the owlet would be approximately 6-9 days old.
