Great Horned Owls

May 28, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

So this was probably one of the neatest things I have captured to date. Over the course of this year I have grown more and more interested in finding the more "uncommon" creatures to photograph. The birds of prey have been more on my radar as of lately. I live by the water so Ospreys are around, we were a stop for the Snowy Owls and as of lately I have learned that we actually have Bald Eagles and other birds of prey around. A co-worker of mine mentioned how he found a Great Horned Owls nest. My excitement went threw the roof. I had to wait a couple of weeks to find the time to get to the nest but when I did... it did not disappoint. Early in the morning there was a mother and her little owlet in the nest. 

 

The baby was so cute! At first the baby was out of site and then all of a sudden the mother started moving and up comes this little guy (or girl). I stayed for a few hours and then unfortunately had to leave. 

Since I have taken these photos I drove past the nest and it was empty. Now, I don't know if that is a thing, the birds mate, give birth, fly away, so one day soon I will have to drive past again and see if they were just out hunting. Until then though I am glad that I had the opportunity to capture these animals and look forward to the next time when a unique find occurs.
