Great Horned Owl For Skywatch Friday

Great Horned Owl Up Late photo by Larry Jordan

This Great Horned Owl mother has been up all night feeding her chicks but she came out into the sunlight for a photo op.  Notice how her brows shield her sensitive eyes from the light of the morning sun.  Take a look at her three chicks who all fledged about two weeks after this shot.  Then so see the other great Skywatch Friday posts!

Beautiful photo of a beautiful bird. Love the feather detail and the colour of the sky. It’s raining here and too grey for photography.

Again, your photos are just wonderful. One of the things I miss about living in the country are the hoot of the owls at night.
