Great Horned Owl at Forest Hills

I had been hearing reports of a nesting pair of great horned owls and two owlets at Forest Hills Cemetery. I went by the cemetery yesterday to see if I could find any of them.

I found one of the owls high up in a hemlock tree. Since I couldn’t see any feather tufts on its head, I suspect this is one of the juveniles, although its size is already intimidating.
