Momma allopreening, or “kissing” one of her owlets, while another owlet seems to be preening momma’s legs. The term allopreening is used to describe the process of one bird cleaning another. It usually happens with mated birds, but here it happened between parent-and-child. I’ve even seen it between siblings. This bonding behavior in owls is generally the grooming or pecking at the feathers around the other's bill and head. Clearly, this owlet is the lucky recipient of parental affection. 🦉♡🦉

Only in Cali can you have a close encounter with a great horned owl in the forest & be on the beach within a 15 minute walk.

Jake's Great Horned Owl. Last November Jake found him on the side of the road just down a ways from our home. The owl had been hit by a car and his body was in perfect condition but his head had been knocked clear off. Advanced Taxidermy did an incredible job and this beautiful owl will forever live in our home.

So Owen went to NZ this week because we are out of NZ chocolate. The morning he left we caught this beauty on our walk with the dogs. Or maybe he caught us. .

There was a predator at the farm that was killing our chickens. Set up a live trap last night and found this Great Horned Owl this morning. As firm believers in fostering a balanced ecosystem we feel the owl is an important piece.  We didn’t want to just release it on the yard in fear that it would just keep killing, so we took it for a drive this evening and released it. Swipe to see the video of it being released. #greathornedowl #heartwoodpastures #nobodywantedhim

Great Horned Owlets branching out from their nest. Owls have fixed eyes so they bob their head around in order to determine position and distance of their surroundings. In this video, there were grazing elk nearby that they were fixated on. Shot through my car window🐦

Two young great horned owls roost together in the shade of a rock outcropping. Owls generally bail out of their nest well before they are capable of sustained flight and they can end up in a more vulnerable position closer to the ground. They are usually well hidden, relying their camouflage while avoiding any movement to hide from predators. The adult owls can be quite aggressive when their young are vulnerable like this so it’s important to limit how closely you approach. As a defence mechanism when threatened, young owls will spread their wings to appear larger while snapping their beaks at the intruder. #greathornedowl #owl #nature #grasslands #wildlifephotography #yql #raptor

Well I have been waiting to post an update till I had one last photo of all three owlets. Well that has been a harder goal then I thought. Still hasn’t happened. Haha But although I haven’t got a shot of all three another photographer that has kept up with them too has. Which means all three owlets are still doing great!!! This shot of Larry and Moe was taken last week. Not sure I will ever see them again. A little sad but what an experience it was with these three!!! Will forever remember watching them grow up! •

The eldest ~ great horned owl nest 2
This is 2 of the 4 great horned owl nests I have been so super blessed with in photographing this year. I am saving the most beautiful & fascinating nest for last. I have so much beauty to share with you. I have videotaped & photographed so many nests this year that this will be the only photo for this family video to follow in a couple days ♥

I started birding in winter 2011 and one bird species that I've always wanted to see was an owl. Finally, after  8 yrs I can say that I saw one and what a beauty. This is a Great Horned Owl. My pop used to tell me stories about the great horned owls he would see out to his cabin and on his moose hunting trips. He was fascinated by their enormous size and now I know why. What a gigantic bird. Breath taking. Maybe I'm silly for thinking this but to me, seeing this owl today and the fact it's my first owl, I can't help but to see it as a sign of my pop. That he was there with me today. 
I love and miss you so much. ♥️
