I received a message from a Facebook fan about a great horned owl that was hanging out not far from where I live. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance to go have a peek.
I found the one she mentioned pretty easily but figured there was probably another nearby and perhaps a nest as well. I never did find a nest but I did find another owl in a tree stand about 30 yards from the first.
The first owl couldn’t hardly keep its eyes open and largely ignored me. The second though was very alert although I suspect that was more due to a nearby squirrel than it was for me.
I truly appreciated getting the word about these fantastic creatures and the tipster earned herself a free print from me. If someone gives me information that leads to pics, I always figure that is the least I can do. So, now you know how to get one of my pics for free! What do you got for me? 😉
