PIC OF THE WEEK: 04/02/18 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2018 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: The day before this image was captured, my wife and I were on an evening walk at a local park to get some exercise. We passed a friend whom I know from the local Audubon Society. He said he was on his way over to see the Great Horned Owls. “Where!” I asked. “Follow me, I’ll show you,” he said. As we approached the end of the trail, there sat two adult Great Horned Owls high up in a Long-needled Pine Tree. This time of year, that typically means only one thing; that they have a nest somewhere within view. I returned the next morning early. It was Easter morning. As I approached the area, these two youngsters came into view. They were sitting on top of a fifty foot Oak Tree that had been sheered off by a storm. They were in clear view. What a Blessing. I got to photograph them for a few hours before slipping off to church. I revisited the birds later that afternoon. One chick had retreated back down into the nest area, so I decided to try again the next morning. Arriving early, the owlets had fledged, as suspected. How apropos that these rapidly growing chicks fledged at Easter. They have risen from their cave in the top of a tree and flown to the safety of the highest branches of the taller trees nearby. Seeing the fledglings make short flights up in the forest canopy is a hopeful sign for their future.
