Great horned of the Forest by DeeOtter Great horned of the Forest by DeeOtter
First of all, happy SupurbOwl Sunday everyone.
Mandatory owl picture time!

This great horned owl was seen over at Ridgefield NWR, which has been a good spot to watch a family of owls for a while. I've never had much luck locating the family (either that or there is an obvious spot that has no room for more people to watch the owls).
So it was nice to see one of the adults just hanging out. This owl looks a bit on the small side, so it may be a male great horned owl.
Also I really like the lighting here!

Another awesome owl picture!! :)  If I had any spare money right now, I'd order this one as a print too! But I need to pay off my credit card first ^^'

There were quite a few good owl sightings last year, especially for short eared owls (not all were photographed, but most were!)

Wonderful shot!
Yeah it looks like a male....just a bit smaller than the female.

I think I have some owl feet pictures somewhere. They're usually covered by belly feathers but I think I have a few that are in mid itch.
