It was a cold day due to some icy wind. It didn’t stop me to take Cooper, our little dog, down to Mud Lake at the Mississippi River after work. Not that I was really longing to go out into the wind but it is the time of the year when the Great Horned Owls lay their eggs. And yes, for the fourth year in a row an owl sits in the old eagle’s nest. Photographically it is not so interesting because you can’t see much of the owl, but as a bird lover I’m very excited.
The photo below shows the young owl that grew up in the same nest last year. The shot is from April 27, 2015, taken after the owlet had left the nest already.
