    She has some pretty good talons. Last time I watched her she threw up a rat and feed the little ones.

    Wow, that is a cool site.

    I've seen owls in the wild just twice in my whole life. They are BIG, impressive animals.

    I am surprized at her / the colors! Dumb question: Could it be a male?
    We have a great horned owl in our yard -- largest species here, but gray. Can't see the nest but know the tree. Great when we get a glimpse of the mother and young'n from last year.

    Its not nearly as impressive with IR lighting. You lose the coloring you see in the daylight.

    An owl hit my truck a few years ago, on a cold rainy night driving down a twisty road on the way to a friends house, it flew right into the side of the truck. I just caught it out of the corner of my eye then THUMP. I turned the truck around and it was standing on the center line of the road, dazed I would guess. I had a field jacket I was thinking about throwing over it, then I thought I'll bet that thing won't like that one little bit, Talons and Beak and pissed off is not what I want in the cab of my truck while I'm driving a three on the tree. So after a few seconds it flew off, I was relieved it was OK and I didn't have to get myself all tore up trying to help it.
    Neat birds for sure.
