Some of you may be interested to know that we have had a family of Great Horned owls in the west side of the Heritage Forest here in Qualicum Beach. We have been seeing 1 adult with 2 chicks. Now the chicks are about 1/2 the size of the rather huge adult. There are always several Barred owls in the eastern portion of the Forest but the Great Horned owls are new, at least in recent times. Seems they have their territories worked out. It's worth noting that the rabbit population in the neighbouring residential area has been thinned out significantly. Hey, biological controls! See you in the Forest.
