Went down to one of the local NWRs today to see if the GHOs had their hatchlings out yet; unfortunately, no little ones and Mom pretty much stayed tucked into the nest hole. Did manage to find some shots of some of the other residents as a consolation; all in all, a pretty good day out.
Mom in the nest:
