The Owls R Back this Year

I have heard the Owls at night for 2 weeks now. Sheeeesh, I couldn't see or find them in the trees tell today. They R realy hide'in well up in the trees. With this cold weather goin up & down Momma must be laying low in the nest. First pic is Daddy way-up there. 2nd pic> Momma poked her head out of the nest. 3rd pic> Momma out of the nest just before dusk tonight.

Yes Annalee, they use the same nest every year, as for house-clean'in, who knows, Owls don't make a nest like other birds do. They don't need twigs & brush to make there nest. they will use the moss from the tree :)

Re: The Owls R Back this Year

It still amazes me how a mating pair of birds, any birds, can find their way back to the same nest year after year.

You started something j by posting pics a couple years ago when you guys moved to The Villages. It's become an annual event and serves as our signal that Daytona is close.

Let the baby naming begin!

Still think we should install a live streaming video camera pointing into the nest. :mrgreen:

Re: The Owls R Back this Year

I like Beav's ...Smoke and Happy........if there is one...Solo or UNO....if there are three...Winkin, Blinkin and Nod.....if ;) :lol: :lol: there are four the "Lady and Three Champs" ..........Danica, Tony, Kevin and Kurt! I just wonder if this is the same pair of owls or their babies and a friend.... If it is the original couple their GPS is incredible!! I wonder also...where they go after they all leave the nest and do they travel as a couple or go their separate ways??....... Jsw this will give us something to think about!! Your Picts are still incredible!!!

Re: The Owls R Back this Year

The picture of the owl peeking over the branch is priceless. How often would someone get that pose? The owl is thinking " No snooping allowed". As for names I like Hooter & Scooter or why not Darrell and his other brother Darrell. Naw that belongs to the Waltrip family.

Re: The Owls R Back this Year

J, I am ALWAYS blown away by your photography skills! Yeah anyone can take a picture... but your pictures seem to always have the right lighting, you capture unique looks... I think your photography is just as amazing as watching these beautiful owls, each year. :-)

Please... keep the pics coming! :-) And a HUGE THANKS, for sharing with us all :-)

Re: The Owls R Back this Year

Maybe he is just that much larger than she is and the eggs would break under his weight trying to keep them warm. Also it easier for him to be guard because of his size than her, not that she is anything to sneeze at.
