Great Horned Owl Nest

Around Butler County.  First image taken 1/30.  Others a few days ago with owlet! Just got a quick peek.  Click on any image to enlarge it.

Don't get to see owls very often...nests are even rarer to find.  Hope to get back when it's bigger.

Birds of Butler County Ohio

Lately, not out as much as I would like, but if you look around, there is always an interesting bird to photograph...maybe in your yard or in a park or near some water.
