Great Gray Owl Chicks

Great Gray Owl Chicks - Spring Creek Ranch, Jackson Hole, WY
This photograph pretty much tells the whole story of what we observed early this morning. Great gray owls are the biggest owl on the continent and are rare in most places.

We in Jackson Hole are fortunate to see them often in this region, but this morning’s sighting of an adult owl landing next to one of its chicks and then soaring off moments later was unforgettable.
