During our time in Florida, we often visited the nearby Lake Parker Park in Lakeland.
We would check out the Great Horned Owl and it's baby owls at least once a week. It was fun watching them grow. These images are taken from a distance and the owl's nest was on top of a light pole that was on the soccer field.
I am sharing a few facts about these owls. The outer ears are concealed by feathers on the side of the head.
Their iris is yellow and their eyes are ranked are among the largest in the animal kingdom.
Their bill is hard and inflexible.
It was awesome seeing the owlets. One on each side of the adult. I assume this is the adult female, we never saw the two parents together.
Thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.
