Great Horned Owl keeping close watch

Going back to April for this capture of the female at my local nest. Her owlets were growing and so she had some freedom to leave the nest and move around. On this particular day, she was feeling brave and hanging out in the open which gave me a pretty nice photo opportunity – even if the skies were kind of drab.

Great Horned Owls are common across all of North America and are the type of owl often depicted in storybooks. During the day they are usually sleeping but at night they come alive and hunt with amazing accuracy in the dark.
