Two Great Horned Owlets

Left-Click to enlarge image.

Our Granddaughter's teacher invited us back to see and photograph the young Great Horned Owlets in her yard. Their soft, downy, white feathers are slowly disappearing as they transition into their adult plumage.

The two Owlets were inseparable. They stood side by side on the limb the entire time. They no longer remain in their nest as it had blown down from the tree due to the continuous howling south winds. They are a 'hoot' to watch. They keep their eyes trained on you the entire time and follow your every move..

A couple of days after this picture the two GH Owlets flew away, never to be seen again. It was a pleasure to see them and I wish them the best.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I lost the blinking contest and blinked first. :)
