Great Horned Owl Update.

Mother Owl returning to her nest

News Flash! So after weeks of checking out the Owl nest and taking pics I had to take a week and go back to the land of madness to take care of some business. On my trip I was able to procure a new (used) but new to me Nikon D7000 so upon returning to my slice of paradise I was anxious to take some pics and check out the progress of the baby Owl. I packed up my usual gear, (fishing poles and camera) and went to check on the Owl nest I could see the baby and started taking some pics, I checked the LCD on the camera mostly to check my lighting as trying to check resolution in the sunlight is pretty much useless, all looked good so off I went. When I got back to the Houseboat I quickly loaded the camera’s memory card in my computer, I was anxious to see how the camera worked and I was also anxious to check on the progress of the baby Owl.  To my pleasant surprise there was not one Baby Owl but two Baby Owl’s sitting patiently looking like little bank robbers waiting for their mother to return with breakfast. I have been looking and photographing that nest for months and could not for the life of me see the other baby Owl…. It’s hell getting old.
