The Great Horned Owls have chosen the nest site behind the fire station and in front of the community center in Everglades City for the second straight year. The momma bird can be seen sitting atop the nest during daylight hours. The owlets will be hatching in January and visible sometime in February.
This beautiful photo was taken by local photographer Greg Dupignac last year at the nest. Last year the Great Horned Owl pair raised two owlets.
