    Default Great Horned Owlets

    Remarkably, this nest platform is just behind the Orange Beach Welcome Center just across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. I've attached the link for the Osprey cam that watches this platform for osprey activity, but this spring a pair of Great Horned Owls took up residence before the ospreys could nest! I took these pics from the parking lot. There are two babies in the nest. From the look of the oldest, I'm glad mamma didn't come home just then! Baldwin EMC Osprey Cam

    Psst! I think there is some shape-shifting going on. Probably Diane and Julie getting ready for the California visit. See the tiny bagpipes peeking over the edge?

    Great pictures, Tami!

    Owl fans will be excited about my Web site news. While my author's blog has been up and running for a couple of months, I'm getting professional help with the book side of the site. While hunting for just the right stock photography I wanted, I came across a stock photo service that sells the rights to its photos by subscription. They have the most amazing collection of raptor photos I've ever seen. Even Diane was bowled over. Gorgeous close-up shots of species worldwide, many I've never seen before.

    I spoke with the owner of the business, and because I want to use the photos for educational purposes, they've given me permission to create a raptor gallery on my Web site. Now I just have to choose which of the 180 photos I want most!
