The Valmont Great Horned Owls laid their first egg on 2/13/12: 8 days earlier this year. Snowflake and Dan are already on egg #2. Here, Dan brings Snowflake a nice mouse.
So when can we anticipate hatch? Based on last year's dates....
- Valmont Hatch estimated: 3/10/12
- FSV Hatch estimated: 3/28/12
An owl was heard at the Decorah Eagle Nest last night. Video by Razzle:
Watchers probably remember some owl scares last year as well. This is scary for us, but life as usual for the eagles.
Thanks for the photo caps and dates - they are very helpful in tracking important dates!
