Baby great horned owls!!!!

This is the first meetup of the year to see the owls! They are growing every day!

The owls are back with a brand new pair of babies! These owlets will be in their nest for only a couple of months (their third year nesting in this spot!), and then they will hang out in the area until at least October. The parents are permanent residents and I often hear them calling at night right outside our door!

Let's go see the babies! You will likely get amazing views of the family, so bring binoculars, fancy camera lenses, and whatever you can! You'll probably get professional quality shots of the owls, depending on your photography skills! :)

The photo above is by Paul K from last year. Mama is feeding them a vole!!

I'm going to have several meetups throughout the spring to watch the babies grow up, so even if you can't make it this time you'll get a chance soon!!

There is no charge for the meetup, but a donation of $5-10 would be welcome!

    Oh, thanks. During the week is a little tough for me to get there.

    I just uploaded a bunch of hi-res photos (the last one of the babies sleeping isn't is great focus, but when viewed at lower res it's not too bad). If you click on an image it will open in a new browser window/tab and you can increase the viewing resolution. Hope you like them! If anyone wants a copy send me an email. Bob

    4 owls, 4 pelicans, 2 heron, and a grand finale... A bald eagle swooped down 30 feet from us and caught a fish in the lake before disappearing over the trees!!
