Owlets

Great Horned Owls are found everywhere. Typically females are larger than males. They perch high in quiet, secluded habitats taking up residence in trees that include deciduous, coniferous and mixed forests. Their preferences are areas of open habitat where they often hunt and woods where they tend to roost and nest. I found these owlets on the grassland located in the South Platte River basin on the Colorado Eastern Plains. They were very cooperative and stayed on their perch for hours!
