A few weeks ago, I travelled to Edisto Island, South Carolina. It was near the state park where I saw an adult Great Horned Owl take flight to search for food during the day. I noticed a small movement which turned out to be a very young owlet. (I named him Einstein, pretty original!)

Great horned owls though, even in their earliest stages have that look of intellect that has given them their well earned name of "Wise Owl."

As we are in the heart of migration and nesting season...keep your eyes peeled and your cameras ready. Birding is going to be at it's best this time of the year and over the next few weeks.
