Description

I AM LUCKY ENOUGH T HAVE SOME LAND JUST OUTSIDE TOWN AND I GET ABOUT EVERY NATIVE SPECIES OF WILDLIFE AT ONE TIME OR ANTOTHER. THIS YEAR I HAVE NESTING REDTAILS WITH ONE SINGLE CHIC AND TWO GREAT HORNED OWLS. IN THE EVENING THEY START TALKING TO LET MOM KNOW THEY ARE HUNGRY AND WANT DINNER. THIS GUY DECIDED HIS FAVORITE PLACE TO PERCH IS ON A VERY STEEP HILL JUST BEHIND MY HOUSE. I WENT DOWN TO TAKE SOME PICTURES AND HE FLEW ACROSS MY POND AND LANDED IN THE TALL GRASS. I WALKED PRETTY CLOSE TO HIM BUT DID NOT WANT TO SCARE HIM SO I TOOK A COUPLE OF IMAGES AND BACKED OUT OF THE AREA. HE WAS SHOWING DEFENSES BY MAKING A LOUD CLICKING. SOMETHING THEY ALL DO WHEN THEY FEEL THREATENED. I USE TO HAVE REHAB LICENSE FOR RAPTORS AND THE ONE BIRD OUT OF ALL I HAD THE MOST RESPECT FOR WAS THE ADULT GREAT HORNED OWL EVEN OVER EAGLES.
