Great-Horned Owlet in the Gros Ventre Campground

Great-Horned Owlet in Cottonwood Tree

I feel as though I haven’t been posting very much lately, and I’m going to immediately blame the World Cup. There are certainly other factors at play though. Summers are a very busy time in Jackson Hole and spring has officially begun winding down to make way for summer and in addition to that, I recently moved from northern Jackson down to Wilson, Wyoming, just west of downtown Jackson.

Given that though, I have made a few efforts to get out and enjoy the last signs of spring wildlife, especially with the two great-horned owlets at the Gros Ventre Campground in Grand Teton National Park. If this scene looks strangely familiar, it’s because the same great-horned owl in the campground had two more owlets in the exact same nest this year. It may be rare, but it’s certainly a treat when nature repeats itself. I missed my chance at seeing the pair learn to fly last year, so that’s something I’m hoping to change this year.
