Thank you to a homeowner in Clive for keeping a watchful eye on a great horned owlet that was on the ground. Mr. D kept an eye out for adults in the area and for potential predators for the youngster. With no sign of adults and not knowing the location of the nest, this hatchling was admitted. Cute (?) little bugger… You can see the egg tooth in the photo.

This admit makes six great horned owl hatchlings admitted so far…
