The baby owls have hatched and are hanging out around Fort Collins again! There are two places that my hubby goes to photo them, and the owls come back to those same nests every year to hatch their babies. The babies are now at the point where they’ll be flying off with their parents pretty soon, learning to hunt and make their own way in the world. But in the meantime, we all have fun seeing them peeking their heads up above the nest and checking out everyone around them. (Of course you need to click on these photos to make the even bigger, because they’re so cool!) It is amazing how well their feathers blend in to their surroundings.
Last year we had Lorna’s Laces dye up a colorway named after our owl friends. It includes the owl colors and the sky color behind them, and we love how it turned out. It’s called Great Horned Owl!
