Went back up to north this afternoon to check on the great horned owl nest... stood around with my hands in my pockets for almost 2 hours waiting for something to happen before Mama started preening and feeding her owlets. The menu selection for the day was fowl, apparently a grebe, judging by the foot I saw in one of my photos... Patience pays! Not the best shots due to poor light and cropping, but I feel fortunate to have captured these!

Always good to get shots that show the intimate behaviours of things.

Good for you to get these Rocky. Just curious.....did the feeding start around 5-6 pm? That's the time the Mom typically fed hers in Florida when I was there.

Thanks, guys!

Ian, this time, she fed the chicks around 5 PM, but on a previous visit, she was feeding them at about 2:30...

Cool shots. Love #3.
