"There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch and gather under her shadow..."
~Bible quote

After days of watching this nest, I finally saw the Great Horned Owls. I didn't have a very good vantage point and the photos aren't very good, but the owls are so pretty. They seemed fascinated by my picture taking and just sat their watching as I tramped around trying to get a decent shot. It was late afternoon and the sun was not cooperating. I'll have to go back in the early morning and see if I can catch another look at them.

I thought there was only one Owl in the nest, but suddenly a second Owl popped its head up.

Watching the lady with the camera trying to find a good spot to take a picture.

Can you see the Owl? It's pretty well camouflaged.


  1. Owls are so beautiful, I think the photographs are fascinating.

  2. You lucky duck!!!! Are these in your neighborhood?

  3. @FFG: Yes, just down the street. A few trees over from this nest is an Osprey nest with a nesting pair in residence. YaY

  4. Ahhhhh, marvellous! Absolutely wonderful photos. I've been fascinated by owls since I was a child and only saw two in my whole life :-( Thank you for this wonderful post and happy Easter if you celebrate it.
