owl and owlet

    Newer Older

    adult and immature Great Horned Owls in Farmington Hills, Michigan

    .....sadly, in the fall of 2008, the utility companies cleared all vegetation within ~50 feet of the power lines and this tree was part of the casualties.

      I wanna squeeze the owlet! He looks like a big puff of down!!
      I know...squeezing would not be either intelligent or kind, but it was the first thing that crossed my mind!
      What an awesome photo!! Lucky you to catch it!!

      Great photo! I've heard Great Horned Owls but I've never seen their nest--so thank you for sharing it.

      That's so cool, lucky you!

      LuvMI , I see today that the parents and young have moved from the nest tree farther into an adjacent woodlot. They'll be better protected from the weather now.

      Ohh what a beautiful photo!! The young one looks huge to me to still be in the downy feathers! Don't you just love those little heart shaped faces? How lucky you are to see them! :^ )

      I was lucky to see and photograph a nest of GHO with 3 little ones in it, last year. Something I will never forget.

      This was a pleasant find ... and near the parking lot at work where I could keep tabs on them.
