Great Horned Owlets

Female came in as I watched the youngsters

This youngster made an interesting
first choice when he left the nest

This nest site does not have youngsters out yet.

It's that time of year when great horned owlets are starting to leave their cavities or nests that their parents appropriated.  The following pics are from three nest sites in the metro area.  Heard about one site where kids threw snowballs at the owlets in attempts to get them to fall off their branch.  One would hope that an amazing opportunity to see these youngsters would be something that is respected with some space and general common sense.
