    As of April 26th, our Great Horned Owl triplets had “branched,” meaning they had jumped from the nest to successive branches nearby, but their flight feathers are still not fully developed. When their wings are able to support the weight of their bodies, they will finally take to the air. Our team is also following closely the nearby nest of Red-tailed Hawks “Tony” and “Carmela,” who last year fledged three young as well.
