Great horned owls begin nesting in January, and they tend to nest in tree cavities or abandoned nests. It took a bit of searching, but I located the nest in a tree cavity. There are three owlets in the nest this year.
What's harder than finding a great horned owl nest? Finding a great horned owl! The young owls were easy to find, as they were in the nest (but won't be for much longer). The adult owl was much harder to find, and blended in with the trees very well.
Whoooooo are you looking at?
Snakes for breakfast?
Drying off after the rainstorm. My favorite photo from the weekend.
One of last year's two owlets.
It was fun to get outside for the weekend looking for owls (even though it rained). Enjoy the photos, and as always comments are welcome!
