This wonderful video was recorded at the north Great Horned Owl nest at the Village Creek Drying beds in Arlington, Texas. It is a montage of recordings made from February 16 through February 24. In this video you can see the female owl caring for her recently hatched young.

It appears that the mother feeds her young during the day from a cache of kills brought to the nest every night by the male owl. We now have confirmation of Owlets at both nest sites at the VCDB.
