Owl faking sleep, guarding young
About This Image
saw this parent Great Horned Owl yesterday, in the wild, basking in the sunshine. Probably the mother owl, as she was quite big. This one's colouring is very dark this year. The new baby owls were in the nest in a hollow tree closeby. A bit too high to get pics of the babies, and too dark inside the hollow tree. Looked like 2 babies, quite small still.
She was preening herself a lot while we watched, then pretended to sleep, but when several people stood below the "nest tree" she sure became alert, so we moved away.
