Owlets hatching!

For my 600th post, just thought I'd link up to the live webcam of a Great Horned Owl nest in Savannah, Georgia.  The nest has two eggs which are about to hatch.  Highlights appear on the site as well.

Quite fascinating :)

Thought also this would be a good chance to add a photo of a Barred Owl I took on one of the smaller islands around here ~



and if you'd like to see some amazing photos of hummingbirds, check out this blog of a fellow who travels North America in an RV.  Sounds like he's also planning a trip to Alaska.  Right now he is boondocking in the desert near Yuma.

  5. Gosh....your owl is amazing!!! I did enjoy that live cam of the horned owl too....it just turned it's head all the way around! That reminded me of an occasion when I was holding an owl while it received an injection, it turned it's head all the way around and eyeballed me!
    That chap does have a great life doesn't he....

    1. Thanks Snowbird ~ interesting owl story...their heads certainly swivel, and I bet eye contact with the owl was rather startling! Fortuately blogger keeps track of the stats, or I would have had no idea I had reached 600 over the years!

  8. Fantastic portrait of the owl, Glo. And many congratulations on 600 colorful, interesting, and smile-inducing posts :-) I watched some of roomie's parents' footage from their visit to South Africa last fall. They were in an aviary where the owls loved standing on guests' head -- especially guests with white hair. And they looked like they actually enjoyed being petted. I'm sorry I didn't get the names of the variety they were.

    1. Thank you Nikki! How interesting about the owl landing and standing on people's heads... must have looked kind of like a totem pole ;) Glad you enjoyed my owl photo!
