Momma Great Horned Owl

A photo of the adult female Great Horned Owl down at Sikome, Fish Creek Park, taken on May 7th. Poor thing - Dad, too - she looked worn out from looking after their three owlets (branchlings at that time, if I remember correctly). I called in at the area yesterday morning, after a three-hour walk nearby, but a quick search didn't find Mom or any of her fledglings. The leaves are out on the trees now, and the Owls were so high up in the trees last time I was down there, that it was almost impossible to see them. So, that's probably it for another year : )
