    Incredible picture. Owlet in the foreground, sun peaking in on them. Fantastic.

    Great pic! GHO’s in CA nest earlier than in more northern states or Canada, most of the more northern nests have just recently laid eggs (ie. WI, MN) or have not nested yet (ie. Alberta, Canada).

    Thank you TKat that is great bit of info :)

    This winter has been very dry and warm, next up is the GHO nest at Strawberry Hill :)
