Mate of Great Horned Owl on nest

Here are some photos of the probable mate of the Great Horned Owl on the nest that I posted on yesterday. Both photos are of the same owl but the plumage appears different with different light. This was also how the owl appeared in person, looking grayish then its' plumaging appearing brownish in the golden rays of the setting sun.

I really enjoy the very detailed plumage patterning on Great Horned Owls. This plumage detail can be seen best on the bottom photo by double-clicking on it so it enlarges.


Save trees in the Boreal forest for birds, not for paper--Opt out of catalogues
