Great-horned Owlet Drooped Over Nest Box

Great-horned Owlet Drooped Over Nest Box

Quotation MarksThis little guy (Bubo virginianus) fell from his nest early on, and because the nest was so high, the Wildlife Specialist created a temporary nest as high as possible using a cardboard box. Once he grew old enough, he would sleep and perch on the side of the “nest,” as seen here. It was hysterical to see him drape his wing over one side, and fall sound asleep. He is just awakening in this photo, as you can see from his droopy eyes. Incidentally, his parents continued to care for him and his sister, who remained in the original nest, and both were successfully fledged to independence. God’s Creations are so amazing!
