My wife and I woke up this morning to see these three youngsters outside our bedroom window. How old do you think they are?

Beautiful great horned owl chicks. You can still see the down on them. They look to be about 4 weeks old. You have a GREAT yard! /Gary

    You and your wife are soooo lucky. I know of some nests, (which will remain secret) but I have only seen the young as big white fluff balls in those nests. I am drooling. thx for sharing. Where in my town is it that you live again????? 😉
