Ollie The Great Horned Owl

Ollie’s mom Grace, has nested in our old hay barn for years. Grace is used to us coming and going in the barn, and has never threatened us. Ollie fledged at six weeks, and we frequently saw him flying in the area with his mother, throughout the summer. Great horned owls are slow maturing, and rely on their parents for several months until they have fully mastered their hunting skills. 01comp 018comp 21comp 31comp 33comp 35comp 41comp 44 comp 47 comp 50comp 54comp...
