These are faces that you may view as really cute or really ugly. Perhaps faces only a mother could love. 😉
I have been monitoring a few different Great Horned Owl nests, anxiously awaiting the appearance of the little ones. At one of them on Saturday I got my first glimpse of three new owlets. There may be more but as I can only view this nest from one side, three was the number I was able to definitively identify. It will be a lot of fun watching these little ones grow up and fledge.
Mama was right nearby when I took these pics and soon returned to the nest giving me an absolutely amazing flyby that I posted earlier – be sure to check my page for those images.
