About the Savannah Owls

During the Fall of 2014, a pair of Great Horned Owls began frequenting this recently abandoned Bald Eagle nest adjacent to a protected, nutrient-rich salt marsh along the Georgia coast. The nest sits nearly 80′ above one of the six Audubon International Certified golf courses at The Landings, on Skidaway Island, near Savannah, Georgia. Over the course of the Fall, the owls courted intermittently on the nest platform, and their hoots could be heard echoing across the greens by nearby residents. Great Horned Owls do not build their own nests, relying on taking over the nests of other birds for their needs, and on the first day of the 2015, the female laid her first egg and the nest officially became “occupied”. The owls have returned again to nest again for the 2016 season.
