The Birds and Bees of Spring – Great Horned Owls

In the coming weeks, we expect the return of our Great Horned Owls to the nest in Montana. In early April, you can meet the pair and their forthcoming offspring on the Live Cam here.

“Breeding by great horned owls takes place as early as January and may continue on into the spring and summer. Females typically lay between 2 and 4 eggs and both males and females take turns incubating the clutch for the 26 to 35 days required for hatching,” (Penn State Un.)
