Owlets and More at Prairie's End


I visited Prairie's End today to catch another glimpse at the Great Horned Owlets. For perspective, here a shot of the owls in their tree cavity without a lens extender.

 
By adding a 2x extender, I am able to get more magnification.
 

 
 
A pleasant surprise, this Black-Throated Green Warbler was singing along the path to the wetlands. He's on his way north to Canada, his breeding grounds.
 
 
 Lynda had mentioned that the Red-Headed Woodpeckers had returned, and I was fortunate to see this pair.
