Immature Great Horned Owl

Few people have had an opportunity to observe the reclusive Great Horned Owl in the wild, so when a pair chose our yard for its nesting site we had good reason to get excited.  We invited neighbors and friends to stop by often throughout the summer and experience this rare event for themselves.  In spite of the noisy crows that relentlessly antagonized these great birds daily (and us too), it was so worth it!  When the pair of fledglings finally left the nest and ventured out into neighboring yards, I was able to get some great shots.  I LOVED getting "up close" to these young birds.
