Three's Company

This is the first time I have been by to check on the Great Horned Owl chicks in Hull's Grove. Wow, they grew fast. We observed the adults mating on a few occasions in early to mid-February. They were probably born mid March. In the last five weeks they have grown to nearly full size.

Is that a rock outcropping?

Soft sandstone. They have nested in there for at least 6 years, maybe longer. They have successfully fledged 3, 3, 4, 4, 3 chicks. As you can see they have 3 this year. Kestrels also nest in the cliffs.
