Finally found some, again, today. They're getting trickier to find when the crows aren't agitated...

Great shot on the one above Eric. That combo (100-400mk2 and 7Dmk2) is awesome. Got to have that lens someday. Excellent captures.

Very nice shots indeed. We found three GHO nests on a road trip earlier this week, but could not get clear shots of anything due to tree limbs and such.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm pretty tickled with this combo so far.

Appreciate it; that seems much more the norm. They like to hide behind branches and anything else.

Great shots!

Just a thought: Use a flash for fill-in and it'll really bring out the details even more. Great job! :-)

Beauties, Eric. The owls up there probably know you and Peter by name, right?:-)
And personally, I like the dark richness of these.

Thanks Rog! And, they certainly appear to be accepting of us, because they are getting to the point where they won't hardly look our direction once they've taken a quick glance our way. :p Which is nice, because our presence isn't bugging them...but it's hard because you don't really want photos of the backs of their heads :D

Super set of shots Eric. Really nice work in tough light. I just don't see these birds much here on the coast, when I do it's usual here in my neighborhood on a rooftop.

Thanks Steve! Appreciate it. We don't get to see them much, either; just got lucky to find this family right behind work.
