    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:

    Nice shot
    They do not make it easy for pics thats for sure.
    They sure know how to hide

    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.
