Great horned owl

Bubo virginianus


A parent owl sitting on eggs. These owls found a perfect place for there nest - in a hollowed out part of a large tree. The eggs should hatch any day. So I hopefully will have more pics and spottings in the near future.


Spotted in a riparian forest at the Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.


The great horned owl is one of the earliest nesting birds in North America, often laying eggs weeks or even months before other raptorial birds.
