A young great horned owl was able to be renested this week thanks to Ian Orlikoff, owner of Signature Tree Care and the expertise of two of his crew members, Dylan Jacques and ISA Certified Arborist, Walter Morales. Under the close watch of both parent owls, Dylan and Walter worked together to return the owlet to his nest on the golf course at Bears Paw Country Club.
Dylan climbed the extremely large pine tree using ropes while Walter maneuvered the owlet up the tree via a pulley system. The men even added extra branches to the nest to give the owlets secure perch options. Also visit the Conservancy’s FaceBook page to see the amazing photos of the renesting process and ours below.
