Watching Great Horned Owls

When Staci and I headed to our last spot to fish, we flushed two birds from the trees.  Initially, I could not tell if they were hawks, turkeys or what… it wasn’t until they landed on a tree across the stream from us that we could see them! Young Great Horned Owls! We are assuming that they are this year’s chicks since they look big but do not have the classic tuffs on the top of their heads.  Any bird experts out there who can confirm?
