Four. That count of little Great Horned Owls caught me by surprise. This is one of the nests I have been watching in recent weeks and up until now I had counted three.
While taking their portrait this past Thursday, a fourth one briefly popped its little head up from behind. It doesn’t look too happy about having its picture taken and only made a very, very brief appearance but I was glad to have captured it.
Taken in Commerce City, Colorado.
