Nesting with Babies!
Thanks to Swarovski Optics
A couple of good friends have kept me posted with news of this Great Horned Owl Nest, 2 babies being fed here, a large rat!
Thanks to my sponsor Swarvoski Optics, this scope is amazing for long distance DSLR photography. With a crop camera, and the 95mm lens on the modular system, we have an effective reach of 1,340mm @ 30x - f9.5.
This nest is about 60 yards from where I am standing, and about 30 yards up in the air. The adults nearby, patrolling the security of the nests, as there are many raptors in the area looking for an easy meal.
Keeping a good distance from the nest is the key to the success of the Great Horned Owls breeding season. Approaching too close could be detrimental to the lives of the babies.
Respect for nature is always foremost on my mind, so keeping this location quiet is a priority.
