Tonight, I think I had the Great Horned Owl all to myself. Tough angles to watch it, cold weather and a Monday all worked in my favor. The winds died down before fly out. So, the owl woke up slowly, stretched and then flew to a nearby tree. When it flew again after a few minutes, I quickly lost it in the dark.
It was so nice to see the owl have almost no disturbances from other birds, high winds or people tonight. (I was safely tucked far away and a fence acted as a natural blind.)
