A little over a month ago I noticed two ears protuding from an Osprey's nest in a tall Pine tree. I knew instantly it was my favorite raptor, the Great Horned Owl, residing in the enormous nest that had been built by an Osprey. Great Horned Owls are known for taking over nests rather than building their own. I quickly turned around and drove past the nest a second time, this time seeing the owl clearly. I was super excited to discover this owl nesting along the main highway I travel regularly to work. I have been viewing the nest regularly and on this past Monday noticed the adult was not in her position. I thought it was possible that there were no successful hatchlings and she left, as that was the case of the nesting GHOs on my street last year. On Wednesday, though, two white, fuzzy heads were visible! I stopped by on my way to MINWR on Saturday and took a few photographs. It was early morning when I photographed these chicks high up in the Pine; they sure are adorable!
