Tanglewood Park Owls

X marks the spot! Thanks to Craig McCleary for placing these sticks on the wire fence! We found the Great-horned Owls right where he had previously seen them.

IMG_0711This was the first Great-horned Owl that we noticed as it flew from one tree to the next.

IMG_0649A second owl flew in to join the first! You can see them both in this picture.

This was a great birding day. Four owls!!!! The Great-horned Owl was a life bird! 😀
