Owl Hatch Has Begun!
We’re excited to share the news with you that the first egg in the Savannah Great Horned Owls nest has begun pipping! Late last night a small hole was seen forming and there is a high likelihood of seeing a new downy owlet enter the world over the next 24 hours. “Pipping” refers to the process of the chick initially breaking through the shell, using a hard projection on its bill called the egg tooth. The resulting hole is the “pip” that the chick then enlarges to finish hatching. This year’s pip follows 33 days of incubation by the female Great Horned Owl in often windy and rainy conditions.
