Update on nesting Pueblo Res Great Horned Owl

As I noted in the post just below, I stopped at the Pueblo Res yesterday to check on both the nesting Osprey and the nesting Great Horned Owl. Just as has been the case on the other occasions I have seen this nest, the female was sitting on the nest. In fact, this time she was lying across the nest with just the top of her head as can be seen by the bottom photo and her ears showing on one end while her tail waved in the breeze on the other end of the nest.

And her ever faithful mate was perched in a nearby tree as usual. He was taking a cat-no, owl-nap as can be seen in the top photo. At dusk I heard them hooting to keep contact.
