Herb, great story and action shots. I liked 1 & 2 and then the last two. On the first two, what kind of field was that. It looked like onions or some type of bulbs in the field. Thanks for a great set.

Looks like you captured a bit of spring fever Herb. I love that lovers spat sequence.

Herb,
I've never seen pics of owls fighting; quite the scene.
Thanks for this excellent series.

Owl fight! Interesting set Herb. Not too many interaction pics on the forum (that I can recall), so neat to see.


Thanks for the kind comment Ken. I'm hard pressed to recall any myself.

Cool action, looks like they do a similar performance to the bald eagles with the back flip routine. Nice to see some natural hunting also. I wish I had been able to see them on Jones beach but I guess I was 1 week to late for that area.

It appears many of the coastal owls have relocated, probably as a result of 20-30 photographers chasing them down from umpteen different angles until they launch, on a daily basis, no less.

Could be, there sure were a lot of birders out their looking for them, only saw a couple photographers but the birders and casual viewers (dog walkers) were all over the place (on Sunday...no one was there on Saturday...). That said early Feb is traditionally when they leave that area so could have been the storm on Tuesday that finally pushed them off that beach....it is very exposed out there as you know. Anyways, neither you nor I actually know the truth about why they weren't there that weekend. Better they get up and fly to another area if they are bothered then being lured to stay around with bait and habituated.

Amazing work here you have some classic shots of the interaction, which isn't often caught. Well done.
