Nice capture - it looks more curious than frightened. I am always surprised at how early some owls nest.

Thanks. He was very curious.

The parents are in the area too. They are much bigger and seem to be unafraid of me.

Actually, this is more in town than out in the boonies. Very close to a residential area.

Hi Dennis,

Very nicely done!

I've never seen an owl in the wild, though it's high on my want list -- but I guess that just wanting it doesn't make it happen --

I have gotten lucky with hawks so far this year, and they've always eluded me before, so maybe . . .

He was very cooperative.
