The Great Horned Stare-Down

Great Horned Owl

Bubo virginianus

 

We saw a Great Horned Owl on January 1 at Tinicum, and I was hoping to see him again. As it happened, we went into the same glade and didn't see him there. Just as we were turning to leave, I glanced back - and there he was. We spent about 45 minutes (and 200 shots) getting pictures of him before he flew off - my best experience with an owl yet.

 

We also saw the massive female, but weren't able to get a shot.
