This Week on Explore (6/16)

DN4 has fledged! After an accidental (and suspenseful) fledge, we have received confirmation that DN4 is successfully flying and exploring the area! He has also returned to the nest, a nice surprise for explore!

And finally, we have to end “This Week on Explore” on a rather sad note. We have confirmed that one owlet from the Great Gray Owl brood has sadly passed away. We are gathering all the information we can and will hopefully have a complete idea of what happened soon. Until then, please remember there are still three sweet owlets who are happy and thriving!

    Thanks Explore for all of the info. I like being able to keep up to date when I get too busy to visit each site.
    So sorry to hear the GGO’s lost a member of the hoot, after such perfect care and nurturing. Mother Nature continues to teach us lessons in spirit as well as body.

    Thank you for the update, Explorer.. I feel like we often get to know some of these animals day in-night out from your cams.. so your sharing related news with us, no matter how sad, is appreciated. Thanks for what you do…
