    Wow, 65 and sunny of Christmas. Guess this global warming stuff is the real deal. Made a trip out this morning and found a few critters. Supposedly there are 3 pelicans in a spot I shoot at 1/2 mile from my house so I am going to try to track them down on Saturday Morning.. Very rare in CT! Thanks for looking and comments welcome...

    1 Couldn't avoid the twig, but how often do you see 2 Great Horned Owls snuggling up?

    In the afternoon when I was driving to a family gathering, the temp actually hit 70.. It was very bizarre... It felt like June...

    Expertly shot as always! The Owls are calling out to me today though. I'm happy I opened this thread and got to see that frame. :)

    Kris, nice pics and you are right - how often do you see two GHOs cuddling together? With your warm weather, maybe they thought it was spring and well you know what happens in Spring. :biggrin-93:

    I'm in the California desert and it is freezing out here. Same temperature as New York City. Burrr. Love your creature features.
