As I was wrapping up my morning at my favorite bald eagle nest, I swung by this great horned owl nest. There, I saw mama and shot a couple quick shots of her. As I was shooting into the sun and she was pretty well buried, I knew any pics wouldn’t be all that great so I moved on quickly.
Much to my surprise, when I got home and processed the pictures, I spotted an extra set of eyes looking at me! The first owlet of the season for me.
This owl nest is extremely close to the bald eagle nest which is kind of unusual. I have seen video of owls attacking eagle nests at night so I just hope these guys leave the eagles alone.
