Using a Canon 1DS Mark III, I got a shot at an aggravated Great Horned Owl, still covered with dew, ┬áthis morning sitting of a Bluebird House about 24-25′ from a Canon EF 600L IS f/4.0 Lens. The crows found him about 8 AM and he bolted into the Woods:

A very lucky shot by me of a Great Horned Owl – he/she “hooooawwd oootooo hoo hoo” and was answered almost every time, all night for several days now in a Black Walnut tree by my rear shed next to the forest; about 30-40 feet away. He is getting ready for a “long days night” of sleep in a fairly inconspicuous place. Im betting the crows find him/her today after the fog lifts:

I\ve been sleeping the the A/C OFF and the Windows open for morn than a week now. It feels so good to listen to the QUIET. ┬áJust a few coyotes yipping at the moon last night, a Great Horned Owl after midnight, several Barred Owls at 4 AM, and a Screech Owl returns and proclaims his territory at dawn at 5:40 AM. Even the insects seemed quieter. The birds have almost quit singing at first light. The 50 degree air and fog make it hard to get out of bed and get going. As soon as I drive out of the valley and up 1000′, I break into the sunshine and can view the fog below.
