    Not sure what I did wrong posting the pic. When I click on the link the pic comes up on a separate page. Are you saying you cant see it?


    I'll try again...

    Hey there's the owl! Now I can see it. Wish I had a cool lynx pic like that. But I do have something so lets see if I can post a pic. First try on this site so lets see how it goes.

    Thats cool, you dont see Great Grays on the ground too often. There are alot of them in my area. It is really something to hear them communicate with each other while they are hunting in the evenings...

    I always wondered what the heck he was doing on the ground. Injured somehow was my best guess?

    I use to be a winter caretaker at a lodge on the Alaska Pennivnsula and there were animals of all kinds. I had lynx that use to walk with me every morning. I would be on one side of the airstrip and he on the other. I have a picture but, it was before digital. I have to see if I can get my photos copied to my comp. or disk

    Default Owls

    Hey gang,

    First time posting in the Wildlife Forum. My guess on the grounded owls is that they are fledglings and don't have the lift to return to the tree yet. There are times where they will eat so much that they can't really fly but those are fuzzy and definitely look like young ones.

    On an ID note, the grounded owls are big and gray but I think they are probably Great Horned Owls, not Great Grays. The Great Gray fledlings have a yellow beak and they are gray/gray, whereas the picture shows the redness of the GHO starting to come in around the eyes.

    Those little saw-whet owls are so cool, I've seen some great pictures but have yet to see one in person.

    Keep posting, there is some neat stuff out there!
    Go Big Red!
