In late August and early September, the Great Horned Owls started calling in Tilden Park. I had not really heard any and had not seen one all summer. So I was excited to go out looking for my owl friends. I found one owl in a set of trees where I had seen one last Fall and Winter and managed to spend a few evenings and a morning with the owl.
Most of the time, the trees made a clear shot difficult. But this morning, I managed a few clean shots of the owl while s/he basked, bathed, and yawned in the morning sun.
