Last year i somehow missed almost the whole tawny owl nesting season so this year i was prepared and i checked the known locations on a regular basis. The best thing was that i was connected to some photographer friends so we could always share info on the owls. Earlier than last year the fledglings left the nest and were seen close by in the tree carefully watched by their parents. As the green leaves weren’t quite there there were some great sights on the owls and owlets without leaves and branches in their way (at least for some shots). So this tawny owl with its red/brownish colors was my favorite one, it blends in with the tree so perfectly. To see more captures of owls click here.
