Species: Great Horned Owl and Owlets | Location: Ephrata, PA, United States

A great horned owl mother and her young owlets in the tree. I have gone to this tree for four years in a row and she has had babies every year. She has had three, two, one, and two in those years. Some have survived, some haven't. I go to this nest from the time mom claims the nest in early February to mid-April when the young ones fledge. I live just 15 minutes away, so I can be here often as I am disabled and use a power chair. Fortunately this nest is very accessible. There is a creek between the photographers and the nest so they don't feel threatened.

About The Photographer

I have done photography for 37 years, off and on. The last 5 years I have gotten more serious about it and have become addicted to bird photography. But like to shoot everything I get a chance to photograph. I became disabled 10 years ago so if my chronic pain is not too bad I can get out when I want to. I am limited to where I can get to in my powerchair. Everything I shoot is from my powerchair or my car.
