Great Horned Owls

These photos were stored in a draft.  Looks like I started this at one point and never got back to it after I loaded the photos.  These are probably from 2011.  Great Horned Owl babies at a local park.

The last photo shows the parent owl at the nest spot.  This was the first and only time I have seen a parent at the tree in the 3 years I've been watching this family.

It's amazing and fascinating to see them grow up and leave the nest.  Exciting too because the babies have no fear of you.  They sit on the limb and stare back all the while I am clicking photos.  These photos were before the babies were limb walking.  I have some shots not yet posted of that.  Plus should have pictures of the 2012 and 2013 families.  More for another day perhaps.
