Great Horned Owlets

It’s mid-February and time for baby owls at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.  We headed over there and found two Great Horned Owlets in the tree nest.  I really didn’t have the lens I wanted to photograph them, so went back the next day and found only one in the nest.  Mom was hanging out nearby, but not where we could get a shot of her.  But we did find a couple other critters.  I enjoyed watching the Northern Harrier Hunting around the refuge and there was a juvenile bald eagle up in a tree.  Guess we’ll have to be happy we saw the owlets at all and try again next year.

Here is a sampling of what I shot that day. For the complete gallery, click here.
