Well I sure was thrilled to see this beautiful lady on my way home today. This Great Horned Owl nest and its occupants have become a fixture in my area and a common photo subject over the past few years.
Recent “improvements” of the open space where they live by the county over the winter had me worried that the pair might choose to move elsewhere. Thankfully they appear to have not only chosen to stay but mama appears to already be keeping some eggs warm.
I did my best to find her spouse, named Houdini by my friend, but had no luck. No doubt he wasn’t far away though. With any luck, you will be seeing many more pictures of them in the coming months.
