Late afternoon on Dec 31, when Kay and I returned home from an early dinner, we heard this low, moaning "whooooo, whoooooo" as we got out of the car.   Upon further investigation, a frantic scramble for the camera and some snoping around, we found 2 Great Horned Owls in a tree just across the street. This guy was very cooperative and stayed on the branches until I was able to get some images. What a magnificent bird.

The other one was tearing a hawk's nest apart and couldn't be photographed. Just after the images were done, they both took off for parts unknown.

We're keeping our eyes open and ears tuned.

Very nice photo Stan!

Reminds me of the frequent visitor that we have here on the (now defunct) ground layout, A Sharp-Shinned Hawk:

**for those who are Small Bird lovers, you have been warned!**

Magnificient bird!

Used to see them out in Eldorado Township. Haven't seen any around the 'burbs, but we do have lots of "forest preserve."
