Watching the watchers

Between fluff & feathers

Between fluff & feathers

A small family of Great horned owls (Bubo virginianus) were sitting in various spots in tall pine trees along a wooded park promenade. The owlets were the easiest to spot with their fleecy white covering.

Two were huddled together on one branch, while a third sat a bit lower in a nearby tree. The parent was virtually invisible until it decided to fly over to another perch for a while.

A rare treat to see so many of these birds in one place.
