Hello, My husband and I came across an enormous fledgling owl in our woods on Monday afternoon, 4/28. To my untrained eye it looked like a Great Horned Owl, but we have heard a Barred Owl in our woods recently. It was still partly downy and had some adult wing feathers. It was perched on the

Hi Claire, This sounds like a really cool observation (and yes it is a Great Horned Owl), but in the future I would advise others not to post specific locations of potentially vulnerable birds. If this bird has been abandoned and/or isn't doing well, it would be better to not send people there who
