Slow Owl Day


I dropped in on the Golden Gate Park Owls and it seems that two of the four kids have dispersed. I found the remaining pair and a parent in full sleepy-time mode.


Here is the full scene. It’s easy to walk by them if you aren’t looking for them. Usually the 10-20 telephoto lenses point out the owls for you but it was quiet last Friday.


Just a full wing stretch before turning around, tucking up a leg, and dozing off again.

  2. Very nice. Owls always remind me of my Grandmother, who collected the figurines.

    • It is a fledgling Great Horned Owl. Thank you for the kind words.
