Yesssss, there are two fledgelings tucked safely in the side of the cliff.  It seems a bit early for them to be so big.  The weather changes may have something to do with it.

The angle of the sun is not ideal but I did not want to use the flash.

The parents were not far away.  They  were nervous to have me so close to the nest and I did not linger long because there were much better photos to be had.

For those of you who have never heard a Great Horned Owl, check out this awsome post by Greg Clark with a sound recording of the owls hooting.

Did I mention that I love Cave Creek Arizona?
