Owlets at the Park

DSC_2018

Two Great Horned Owlets were spotted yesterday afternoon at a fabulous park that is close to the housing development where I live in Marion County, Florida.  These were the first baby owls I have seen in the wild.  The two babies were up in a stick nest high in a Pine Tree next to the little ornamental Koi Pond.

I also noted a hungry Common Cormorant and several basking small turtles.  I did not see any Great Blue Herons and I am thinking that these owls are in an abandoned heron nest (I recall seeing herons in that same tree last Spring).  I took these pictures on March 19, 2015 late on an overcast afternoon.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.  Enjoy!
