Great Horned Owl

This past weekend I had the pleasure of spending some time at the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum in Vista California. They had their Spring Tractor Show going on. It was a fun time as always, but I had a particularly thrilling experience. I got to see a whole family of Great Horned Owls in a barn there! Here are some of the photos I took of the family.

This one sounded like it was going to deposit an owl pellet and even looked like it but didn't.
It really was an exciting experience to be able to take photos of these owls. I have since learned that Great Horned Owls are usually quite skittish. These seemed quite comfortable with our presence. If you'd like to see more photos of this family here is a link to 16 photos I uploaded to a gallery. Owl Gallery
