Nice shots, we had a pair of baby barred owls in our backyard last summer and they were quite funny as they were learning to fly they took to coming out on our garden trellis at dusk when mom would head out hunting.

How did you manage to find the nest?

thanks, Ramcewan! actually, a friend told me it was there, and since the nest tree is literally within arms reach of a path in the park, it wasn't hard to find. the nest is about 12-15 feet above the path, and very easy to find if you know which tree to look for.
