The third and final egg hatched this morning on the Barred Owl cam! Catch this unobstructed view of the down-covered trio when the female makes a short trip out of the nest box to collect a chipmunk. The nestling period is a stage of rapid growth for these owlets. Each will gain an average of ~15 grams (a third of a hatchling's weight) every day over the next month. Good thing there's a stocked pantry in the nest box!
