Great Horned Owls in Grand Junction, CO.


Left click twice on the photos to see them full size.

This morning's first view of the adult great horned owl and its owlet, spotted on the Audubon Trail portion of the Colorado River Trail System in Grand Junction, Colorado.

A second owlet could be seen in the tree that houses the original nest. These guys have been venturing away from the nest for a couple of weeks now. There were originally three owlets.
I didn't see the third owlet yesterday or today.

Adult and the young from the other side. Looking towards their nest.

Another view of the lone owlet in the nest tree.

I bade the owls farewell for the morning.
