Great-horned owls

I have located seven Great-horned owl nests this spring so far. They sit on those nests through snow, wind, rain and sunny weather.  What a dedicated bunch.

They are wonderful!! We have burrowing owls around here and it's kind of hard to believe these two are even related. Haven't seen a great horned owl for years. Thanks for the beautiful pictures and the memories.
