 Great Gray Owls

Great Gray Owls

Wauconda WA

I had an amazing morning with this pair of Great Gray Owls. They spent ten minutes preening and talking to each other.
They looked like they cared for each other and were reinforcing there bond. It was wonderful to witness and record. I want to thank my friend Lee Johnson of Wauconda WA for locating and leading me to these birds.

Lovely interaction between two Great Grays. I am surprised that they are in WA at this time of year. Do they usually nest that far South?
