Friday's Foto

Unlike most birds, Great Horned Owls begin nesting during the winter. Our Brooklyn pair are now incubating eggs. This is their third try in as many years. The last two attempts ended in failure. Hopefully, three times a charm.

Hi, Rob.
I love visiting your site, reading about your birding adventures, and seeing your beautiful photos.

Thanks, too, for all the on-the-fly Prospect Park bird tutelage!

Best,
Lisa (saw you today in ravine, was wearing owl mittens)

Our owls!! They always make my day and Ive become very protective of them. It would be nice if they produce. There past attempts were sad failures. Human Impact and Mother Nature. Im holding a good thought.
