Eyes Open - Project 365 Day 82

Day 82 of 365, Great Horned Owl down at Sikome Lake in Fish Creek Park. It's pretty rare to find this guy with his eyes open let alone as alert as he is here. At the moment, he is across the road from the nesting tree where his mate is likely hunkered down waiting to have babies. I first encountered these owls last spring in early May when they had two owlets poking their heads out of the nest. I'll have to start looking for some new young ones around that time this year.
