Photo Share: Peeping Owl

Look for Great Horned Owls in young woods interspersed with fields or other open areas. In the late summer owl parents are still probably training their young to hunt. By the end of September the young owls become independent and begin to look for new territories.

They are well camouflaged. Their mottled gray-brown, with reddish brown feathers blend in perfectly with the trees during the day. You may see them at dusk sitting on fence posts or tree limbs at the edges of open areas as they begin their nocturnal hunt for prey on the ground.
