I've been documenting the growth of a GHO chick in a nest built by a college student as a study for her college thesis.
I just wanted to share a couple that made me laugh when processing.

Is that branch getting closer?!!

Great look at nestling GHOs!
I love the captions and find them very fitting.
We'd love to see more as fledge time arrives.

Fantastic shots and captions. My attempt at GHO chicks was a disaster, a ball of feathers with a couple of claws sticking out.
