Poppa Owl

11-20-2018. This is the male Great Horned Owl. For 10-consecutive years his mate (we named her Athena) has nested at entrance to Lady Bird Wildflower Center. She gets on nest early February, owlets hatch mid-March, and fledge end of April.

This photo taken last year. GHO's mate for life, and female never leaves nest until owlets get bigger. The male brings food to feed family every day.
