GHOW Arrives In A Gale

January 23, 2016 by Rick Cunningham

In this video from 6:05 am Jan 23, you can just see the female Great Horned Owl on a branch of an adjacent tree – as the wind blows, watch for one of her eyes reflecting the infrared light. She takes off from there and lands in the nest actually being blown backwards to a landing. We’ve said this just about every day for the last week, but do you suppose that this could be the day??
