Lucky to find a Great Horned Owl family in the Chicago area. Not the greatest of images but an attempt to capture a bird not so commonly spotted in the city. I know the background is blown out but shooting conditions were very tricky and it was very cold with very strong winds blowing throughout the day.

I am having some trouble posting pictures so if someone can help out I'd certainly appreciate it:

Thanks Gale. I shot wide open with my 80-200 + Kenko 1.4X and had to crop the image almost 40%. Considering this was my first birding outing, and considering the brrrrrrr cold conditions in Chicago yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised I came up with this shot.
