Of course it was a hawk; I guess I had owl on the brain, sorry!  Poor Mom; I hope the hawk stays away.

Just saw this posted by Landings Bird Cam - Savanna; hoping that things will still turn out ok:

"Some of you have noticed that we haven't seen the male Great Horned Owl recently or any recent feedings of the owlet. Our partners at Cornell Lab of Ornithology has posted this info for the viewers of the Great Horned Owl cam:
'Advisory: Possible Issue at Owls' Nest'
For the first few weeks post-hatching, the majority of the food at a Great Horned Owl nest is provided by the male owl. Unfortunately, the male owl at the Savannah nest has not been heard or seen since March 2, and the last time the owlet has been seen eating was the morning of March 4.
It’s unclear whether the female owl will be able to catch enough prey to raise the owlet herself, but there are records of single-parent Great Horned Owl nests successfully fledging multiple owlets and we are hopeful that, if the male owl does not return, there could still be a successful nesting season.
We understand if viewers would prefer not to watch until the outcome is clearer. We will continue streaming from the site to discover what the future might hold for the Savannah Great Horned Owl nest."

I've wondered where he is - and why the pantry is empty.  He kept it full.
Female was gone a very long time this morning.
I remember the male loved to wait til his mate ate his gift before he flew up to a branch, and hooted bye bye.  They're a nicely mated pair.

DAD FEEDS OWLETTA
March 7, 2022  Its EXTREMELY RARE for the male to feed the young.  Not unheard of, I've seen it before.  I even saw the male try to feed the 3 eggs when the female was away.   ;D

About 8 pm March 6 while Mom was gone, Dad dropped off a mouse.  Owletta took it from him, tried to swallow it whole but she is too young still.  Dad flew off.  Hunting must be bad, wonder why.  When Mom returned, she fed baby.

4.30 am  Mom was gone 5 hours March 6 evening, back for a short time to warm and comfort baby, then left again.  I have seen her return twice - no prey.

DAD FEEDS FROG
March 8, 2022
3.30 am  Dad arrives with what appears to be a frog - something small - Owletta took it and swallowed it whole, then begged confused Dad for more!  He stood there for awhile.

He saw she couldnt swallow his mouse yesterday, so brot something smaller.  HE LIKES seeing his gifts consumed.   :)
