Great horned owl chicks

In a small, and I do mean small, woodlot on the north side of Chatham, a pair of great horned owls have successfully reared a pair of chicks.
The nest is about 12 feet up in a broken tree.
The parents were keeping watch in the tall trees nearby.
Very poor light and rain. Hope to go back on the weekend when they are forecasting better weather.
We are hoping no one harasses the chicks and they get to fledge.
